I am interested in visuo-spatial cognition in typical and atypical populations. My current research in typically developing children, and individuals with Autism, Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, Attention Hyperactivity Disorder, and Developmental Coordination Disorder includes the areas of navigation, motor performance, mental imagery, spatial language, perceptual integration, visuo-spatial memory and orientation coding. My most recent research interest relates to the relationship beween spatial thinking and Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) in primary school age children.
