I am primarily interested in individuals with developmental disabilities and ways of maximizing interventions for these populations and measuring social, cognitive, and neurological gains.
I received my B.A. in Neuroscience from Kenyon College, a small liberal arts school in central Ohio. I spent my senior year working as a research assistant in a cognitive neuroscience laboratory headed by Tabitha Payne, PhD. I then spent two years working as a research assistant in Washinton University in St. Louis's Reading and Language Laboratory, headed by Rebecca Treiman, PhD. I also have many years of experience working in St. Louis ARC, an organization that provides services for individuals of all ages with developmental disabilities.
