About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Cognition, Language, and Development program at the CUNY Graduate Center. 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. Additionally, I utilize visual evoked potentials to study excitation and inhibition patterns in autistic children and children with Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.
