Research

The primary focus of my research is in genetic influences on brain activity and the application of heritable brain responses as reliable endophenotypes for complex brain-based disorders, particularly developmental and psychotic disorders. I am currently working to conduct family genetic research using dense phenotyping strategies (including EEG) to resolve the etiological heterogeneity of Autism Spectrum Disorders with a specific focus on sensory processing and sensory hypersensitivity. I am also involved in developing EEG biomarkers as outcome measures for drug treatment trials in Fragile X Syndrome.
