Research Overview

We conduct interdisciplinary research aiming to increase our understanding of child development, with a particular focus on neurodevelopmental conditions.

Our research includes several clinical projects about early development in individuals with autism spectrum conditions and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In two large scale clinical research projects, EASE and PIP, we aim to characterize early development in autism spectrum conditions and ADHD, to improve early diagnosis and individualized support for children and their families. We also conduct twin studies of infants and children to understand how genetic and environmental factors contribute to individual differences in brain development and behavior. We use a range of methodologies in our studies, ranging from behavioral testing and interview with parents, to eye tracking/pupillometry and brain imaging.
