As a pediatric neuropsychologist, my research aims to improve understanding of the neuroanatomical and functional substrates that contribute to the constellation of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral sequelae of childhood neurologic injury, including pediatric brain tumor. I integrate neuroimaging methods with assessed and observable social and emotional functioning to improve early identification of those at elevated risk to inform early of those at greatest need for intervention. Currently, my funded work focuses on integrating functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging of white matter integrity, with a particular focus on social cognitive and executive functions in survivors.
