Our lab is broadly focused on investigating the relationship between brain connectivity and cognition in typical and atypical development. Within a cognitive neuroscience framework, our research combines functional connectivity analyses of resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging data and structural connectivity analyses of diffusion-weighted imaging data to examine the organization of large-scale brain networks supporting high-level cognitive processes.

Our current projects focus on understanding dynamic network interactions underlying cognitive flexibility in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism as well as characterizing network and individual variability across the lifespan.

We are interested in understanding brain networks that support flexible behaviors in typically developing children and children with autism. We study this using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to safely collect information about brain structure and function.
