    Collapse Overview
    The overarching aim of my research is to improve our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental conditions, with the long-term goal of contributing to personalized medicine approaches for interested individuals. My work leverages large-scale multimodal neuroimaging data -- including diffusion-weighted MRI and resting-state functional MRI -- together with advanced imaging and statistical methods. My primary line of research characterizes the neurobiological underpinnings of brain-based conditions such as autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In my other main branch of research, I investigate typical brain development and moderating factors in large-scale population-based samples.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
