My research looks at how children with and without autism see the world around them, and the impact that this has on their day-to-day lives.
During my PhD, I investigated how children with autism judge the speeds and directions of moving objects. These abilities are crucial for doing everyday things like catching a ball or crossing a road.
My current research uses psychophysics to understand better how children with autism process visual information, with a particular emphasis on the mechanisms supporting atypical perception. I hope that my research will lead to a better understanding of the sensory symptoms experienced by individuals with autism, which may eventually help to develop education and intervention programmes.
