Research Interests

Autism is associated with deficits in episodic recollection but preserved semantic memory. Specifically, individuals with autism have difficulty mentally reconstructing the context in which they originally saw a particular stimulus or experienced an event, for example. My research focuses on the cognitive and neurological basis of this deficit. I aim to dissociate the aspects of recollection that are impaired, study encoding and retrieval mechanisms this lead to diminished episodic memory, and to study the brain mechanisms that underpin these differences in autism, which, currently, is unknown.
