  • Research Interests

    My research falls within the field of clinical neuropsychology.

    Specifically, I am interested in the cognitive, behavioral and psychological impact of craniosynostoses, particularly metopic synostosis.

    I have also extensively explored the impact of traumatic brain injury on the risk of depression and anxiety.

    In addition to clinical research, I have considerable experience formulating meta-analyses that consolidate existing research in various areas of neuropsychology and education.
