Summary

My research interests generally focus on cognitive and brain development in individuals with autism spectrum disorder. I am particularly interested in exploring differences in executive function and sensorimotor abilities and related brain mechanisms in ASD through inhibitory control tasks, eye movement tasks, and electroencephalography (EEG).
