My research focuses on children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) such as intellectual disability, autism, and ADHD. My lab, The Precision Neurodevelopment Lab, uses trailblazing precision medicine approaches to help children and youth with NDDs and their families live better everyday lives. We strive to find answers to unresolved questions rooted in the real-life problems faced by these children and youth through inclusive and equitable research, backed by cutting edge techniques.
