Research Interests

My study aims to improve our understanding of how children and young adults with and without autism spectrum disorder differ in how they perceive visual information. This will be primarily achieved through eye tracking and by measuring brain activity via electroencephalograms in response to elementary and social visual stimuli (EEG). 

Completed a PhD in Vision Sciences at the University of Montreal specializing in visual neuroscience and psychophysics.

Keywords: visual perception, cognitive assessment and enhancement, electroencephalography, eye tracking, ageing, development
