My research interests focus on cognitive and developmental psychology. I am particularly interested in understanding the nature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and what we can learn about typical development through the study of developmental disorders. My research has focused on exploring metacognition (awareness of own mental states and cognitive activity) and mindreading (awareness of others’ mental states and cognitive activity), and the relation between both processes, in ASD and typical development. I am also interested in studying alexithymia, interoception, episodic memory, and lie detection abilities in typical and atypical populations. I am always happy to talk about research ideas and to meet with potential students. Please feel free to email me or come by my office during my office hours. I also welcome students interested in applying for a PhD within any of my research areas.
