My research focuses on using epidemiological and statistical methods to better understand a wide range of topics that affect people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families. I aim to explore and identify ways to find more homogenous subsets of ASD that can be used to efficiently track phenotypic trajectories and target interventions at a population level. I would like to extend this work to adult populations, specifically trying to examine long-term health outcomes and the interplay with the lived experience of having ASD/IDD. I am always excited to collaborate with ASD/IDD researchers from all fields to add my insight into reducing biases and increasing generalizability.
