Research Abstract:

Areas of Research Interests
1) the influence of genetic and environmental influences on childhood social development;
2) the genetic structure of autism spectrum disorders;
3) the prevention of child maltreatment and its consequences;
4) the intergenerational transmission of attachment;
5) the development of rapid, quantitative methods for phenotypic characterization of autism and related developmental disorders
