My research focus is on the global epidemiology of developmental disorders. More specifically I am interested in issues related to research in LMIC, including service delivery models, use of appropriate diagnostic tools and cross-cultural work. I am interested in Autism Spectrum Disorders and early language development/bilingual language acquisition.


Things I enjoy doing include salsa dancing, sewing, eating and hot yoga!
