  • Dwaipayan Adhya Mr Dwaipayan Adhya
    Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Studies have shown that it affects more males than females. Prenatal exposure to sex steroids, especially, testosterone have been shown to be related to development of autism. Epigenetic changes hav...
  • Julie Bailey
    My doctoral research project at the Faculty of Education focuses on the experience of autistic pupils in mainstteam education, through an investigation of the behavioural indicators of engagemnet with classroom learning. This study applies finding...
  • Simon Baron-Cohen Professor Simon Baron-Cohen
    The Autism Research Centre (ARC), of which I am Director, has 6 programs of research, all focusing on Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC): (a) Perception and Cognition (investigating social and non-social cognition and sensory processing); (b) Neu...
  • Richard Bethlehem Richard Bethlehem
    I currently am a Research Associate at the Autism Research Centre and collaborate with the Geschwind lab at UCLA to work on integrated Neuroimaging and Transcriptomics in order to gain better understanding of genetic underpinnings of atypical neur...
  • Jantine Broek Jantine Broek A.C.
    My PhD in the Bahn lab concerns the fragile X syndrome (FXS) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The project aims to discover the underlying mechanisms of FXS and ASD, which will contribute to the future development of early diagnosis and treatment.
  • Bhismadev Chakrabarti Professor Bhismadev Chakrabarti
    My research group is based at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics at the University of Reading. We study emotion perception, empathy, and autism using functional MRI, eye gaze tracking, and psychophysiology. I am happy to co...
  • Isabel  Clare Dr Isabel Clare
    I work in the Cambridge Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Research Group in the Dept. of Psychiatry and as a a senior member of the Enduring Disability and/or Disadvantage clinical theme in the NIHR's CLAHRC East of England. My research in...
  • Alexander Coles Mr Alexander Coles
    As a Research Intern at the University of Cambridge's Autism Research Centre I have looked into many different areas of research. I started by spending many months working on the EU-AIMS Longitudinal European Autism Project which investigates the ...
  • Rose Cooper Miss Rose Cooper
    My research focuses on cognitive and neurological differences in episodic memory between typical individuls and adults with autism spectrum disorder, specifically focusing on autism-related impairments in the use of recollection to retrieve contex...
  • Dr Greg Davis
    Visual attention, Visual search, Unconscious processing, Security Applications, Autism
  • Dorothea Floris Dorothea Floris
    I am interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of autism spectrum conditions (ASC) with special focus on cerebral lateralization and functional connectivity. During my PhD I investigated atypical hemispheric specialisation in ASC at differen...
  • Jan Freyberg Dr Jan Freyberg
    My primary interest is in psychophysics as a tool to investigate the brain. I am using behavioural paradigms that rely on basic perceptual mechanisms to look at the visual system in autism. This not only gives rise to information on if - and how -...
  • Dr Jenny Gibson
    Jenny’s research interests lie in the interplay between linguistic and social development from childhood through to adolescence. She studied at University of Manchester where she gained a BSc (Hons) in Speech and Language Therapy, before going on ...
  • Ms Nazia Jassim
    For my PhD research, I use ultra-high resolution fMRI to study perception and higher-level cognition in autism. My research interests include neuroimaging methods, cognitive neuropsychiatry, and computational modelling.
  • Meng-Chuan Lai Dr Meng-Chuan Lai
    As a clinician scientist, my vision is to bridge and integrate multi-level biological-cognitive-psychological-social research and clinical services. My clinical interests are in the risk and resilience processes across the lifespan in individuals ...
  • Amandine Lassalle Dr Amandine Lassalle
    I am interested in emotion and gaze processing in neurotypicals and individuals with ASC.
  • Dr Rebecca Lawson
    We all have expectations about how the how the world should look, feel, smell, taste and sound. These expectations act as predictions to guide us when we are uncertain, and signal when something out of the ordinary is happening. My work uses com...
  • Michael Lombardo Dr Michael Lombardo
    I am interested in understanding the mechanisms occurring in early development that are behind atypical brain development in autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Aicha  Massrali Aicha Massrali
    I am studying atypical neuronal development in the autism brain using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC). The use of iPSC combined with genome editing technologies allows me to investigate the role of an autism high risk gene (Ne...
  • Dr Susanna Mierau
    My research focuses on the fundamental rules that govern the development of synaptic and network activity in the cortex and how this process is disrupted in autism and related disorders, with the ultimate goal of developing novel therapies. I com...
  • Dr Ekaterina Ostashchenko
    My main research interests are in the field of language acquisition in children with developmental disorders. Since the same thing can be said in many distinct ways, variation is a core characteristic of language. Moreover, several levels of langu...
  • Kate Plaisted Dr Kate Plaisted-Grant
    My research interest in autism was sparked by the fascinating cognitive strengths shown by many individuals with autism. These include exceptional abilities to process fine details, better discrimination abilities compared to typical individuals a...
  • Alexa Pohl
    Many psychiatric conditions may have origins in abnormal brain development in utero. It is hypothesized that autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) may be linked to higher levels of testosterone during a critical period of brain 'programming' that occ...
  • Andres Roman-Urrestarazu Dr Andres Roman-Urrestarazu
    My research interests are related to developmental disorders such as Autism, Schizophrenia and ADHD. I am interested in risk factors and traits that predispose to neuro-developmental disorders.
  • Amber Ruigrok Amber Ruigrok
    Amber Ruigrok is a researcher at the Autism Research Centre, Dept of Psychiatry. Amber's PhD research investigated how testosterone and variation in the androgen receptor may be involved in the development of sex differences in human brain white m...
  • Sophia Sun
    I completed my MPhil in Public Health in 2009 focusing on the Epidemiology of Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). As a PhD student, I am interested in research in the prevalence of ASC in China, with special focus on cultural and environmental infl...
  • Jack Waldman Mr Jack Waldman
    I am currently working as a Research Assistant on several projects with fellow colleagues at the ARC. One project is investigating the role of foetal testosterone in later brain function. The other two are investigating brain development in siblin...
  • Varun Warrier Dr Varun Warrier
    I work on the genetics of autism, human behaviour, and human neurobiology. Within in autism, my research focuses on dissecting the heterogeneity of autism and autistic traits, and using genetics to inform health and wellbeing in autism. In human ...
