Research Summary
I'm an autism researcher at UCL's Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, studying cognitive abnormalities through behavioural and neuroimaging techniques.  I'm interested in the universality, specificity and sufficiency of mentalizing difficulties and of a local processing bias in explaining the core symptoms of autism, and whether an implicit mentalizing impairment can account for difficulties in other cognitive domains too.  The ultimate aim is to understand autism better in order that evidence-based interventions can be developed that are targeted at the source and make a real difference.
