Biographical Statement

Broadly speaking, my research interests are in multisensory social perception and phenomenal consciousness. I use methods from developmental social cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychology, and comparative psychology to examine both the neural systems and developmental origins of social perception and implicit self-awareness in typical and atypical development. Currently, I focus on two specific areas of investigation: (1) the identification and characterization of early neurocognitive risk for social impairment in ASD, with a special emphasis on the functional connectivity of the ‘social brain’ and (2) the multisensory basis of experiential self-awareness. I direct the Early Sensory Experiences Lab, which is located on the IUPUC campus. Learn more about the ESE Lab online at
