I believe that all children should have access to appropriate medical care and evidence based interventions to help improve their quality of life and developmental outcome. Clinical Interests: I am interested in taking care of children with autism, congenital heart defects, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders and children born prematurely. Research Interests: My research interests include examining access to recommended services and interventions for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. I also have an interest in the neurodevelopmental outcomes of children with congenital heart disease and children born prematurely.
