Research Interests

Much of my past research has focused on Autism Spectrum Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders. As a new postdoc, I look forward to working with Dr. Marc Weisskopf broadening my research base to also focus on environmental risk factors for development and progression of neurodegenerative disorders, such as:

  • Parkinson’s disease (PD)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
