Dedicated, respectful, and collaborative professional with considerable experience conducting neuropsychological assessments for children/adolescents with learning disabilities as well as those with complex medical, neurodevelopmental, and neurological disorders. I have received both breadth and depth of training in pediatric neuropsychology which prepared me for my role in the pediatric Neuro-Immunology, Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders, and Learning Disabilities programs in the Department of Neurology. In addition to my sound clinical training, I have a solid research background. My research has focused on examining contextual and biologically-based correlates of child behavior problems. The ultimate goal is identification of potential moderators and mediators of maladaptive outcomes, particularly in under-represented and at-risk groups.
