About Me

I am an incoming T32 postdoctoral fellow at the Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Center at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory.

My research focuses visual perception and visual attention in neurodivergent populations. I am particularly interested in employing objective measures of visual attention, such as eye-tracking and pupillometry, to investigate hierarchical visual processing differences associated with autism. I have also utilized visual evoked potentials to study excitation and inhibition patterns in autistic children and children with Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.

I completed my PhD in Psychology (training area: Cognition, Language, and Development) at The City University of New York, Graduate Center, my Masters in Psychology at The City University of New York, Hunter College, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting at the State University of New York, New Paltz. I am also a Licensed and Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
