Current Public-Health Related Activities

I will be starting as an attending physician in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and an instructor in CHOP's Policy Lab. My research is focused on disparities in the identification of low-income and minority children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental and behavioral conditions, and in screening for these conditions as a form of secondary prevention. I have also participated in global health work, and I'm currently working on a project to expand early reading activities with young children in a rural community in the Dominican Republic as a way to boost early literacy, attachment with parents, and developmental skill attainment.
