I am a research scientist in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. I am a Developmental Psychologist with a research focus on autism spectrum disorders, specifically early identification and diagnosis, socio-emotional development, and verbal and nonverbal communication. I received my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at UCLA under Dr. Marian Sigman. My current research explores the potential role of human-centered computing and computer-human interaction in impacting research on the social and communicative development of children with diagnoses on the autism spectrum. I am a member of the Ubiquitous Computing Group and Autism Research Group at Georgia Tech.
