Research Overview

I am interested in understanding the developmental patterns for infants at risk with developmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and devising novel interventions for children with ASDs.

Currently, I am working on following two projects:
1.Effect of robot-child interactions on social and motor skills of children with ASD.
2.Examining early perceptuo-motor development in infants at risk for ASD.

Future project:
1. Effect of yoga interventions on social and motor skills of children with ASD.
