Postdoctoral Fellows

Amanda CremoneAmanda Cremone, PhD

Amanda joined the LCN as a postdoctoral research fellow in September of 2017. She is currently working on projects charting biomarkers and cognitive outcomes in children with autism. Prior to joining the LCN, Amanda received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Behavior from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2017) and her B.S. in Psychology and Biology from Merrimack College (2012). In her graduate work, Amanda used EEG to study the role of sleep on executive functioning in both typically and atypically developing children. Amanda is excited to broaden the scope of her research to use both EEG and eye-tracking to assess developmental trajectories of executive functioning in young children with autism.
