My research, teaching, and clinical interests focus on social communication, or the use of language and nonverbal communication in social interactions. The goal of my work is to improve our understanding of social communication and the cognitive factors that contribute to successful communicative interactions, including social cognition and executive functions. My laboratory, the Social Communication Intervention and Assessment Lab (SoCIALab), focuses on developing innovative assessments and treatments for social communication disorders, especially in individuals with autism spectrum disorder or traumatic brain injury.
I look forward to working with faculty and students at UNH, to prepare the next generation of clinicians, develop innovative social communication assessments and treatments, and improve the lives of individuals with communication disorders!
