Research Summary

I am a cognitive scientist interested in attention and perception in autism. I find it fascinating how autistic adults and children see the world differently from those without autism. In particular, my work focuses on superior abilities in the condition: situations where autistic people perform better than non-autistic people. 

My research tries to figure out what is causing these advantages, in what circumstances they occur, and how we can use them in the classroom and workplace to improve learning and employment outcomes for autistic people.
