Interests

For my PhD research, I use functional MRI to study the neural bases of systemizing in adults with high-functioning autism and in neurotypical individuals. Additionally, I am investigating the brain bases of savant abilities in autistic individuals.

My research interests include neuroimaging methods, cognitive neuropsychiatry, and computational modelling.
