Interests

My main research interest is in the determinants of children's cognitive development with particular focus on neural constraints. I'm investigating this topic with different participant groups including children with genetic, psychiatric, sensory, or learning disorders. I employ neuropsychological and cognitive tools for behavioural assessment and use a variety of imaging techniques to address questions about neural mechanisms, including structural neuroimaging (surface-based measures, diffusion-weighted imaging) and EEG (event-related potentials, source reconstruction).
