Prof Elizabeth Pellicano profile picture
  • Professor of Autism
  • Clinical, Edu & Hlth Psychology
  • Div of Psychology & Lang Sciences
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I am a developmental cognitive scientist and educational psychologist, who has long been committed to transforming autism science so that it more accurately reflects everyday autistic life. 

I am Professor of Autism Research at University College London, having recently been Professor at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Previously, I was Professor of Autism Education and Director of the Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE) at UCL Institute of Education. My most recent research, funded by a Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council, identifies ways to bridge the gap between lab and life and open up research to greater involvement of Autistic people themselves, with the aim of generating scientific discoveries that bring real benefits to Autistic people and their families.
