I'm pleased to announce that my manuscript, "A semantic priming event-related potential (ERP) task to study lexico-semantic and visuo-semantic processing in autism spectrum disorder", has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Visualized Experiments! Check back at the Publications page soon for DOI information. This journal also includes a video article with the publication, so more information about that will be coming soon!
I'm pleased to announce that I've been awarded the Early Extra Promotion of Research & Scholarly Success (EXPRESS) award from the Office of the Vice President for Research at the University of Vermont! This is a small research grant that will help support studies I'm currently running on visual narrative comprehension in individuals with ASD.
I have a new study that you can participate in online! This is a collaboration with Neil Cohn at Tilburg University and Tom Foulsham at the University of Essex. The study looks at how people understand comics, and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Click here to participate!
Earlier this year I worked with the Hopkins press office to put out a news release of my recently-published paper on linguistic and non-linguistic semantic priming in ASD. The story was picked up by a number of outlets - see the full list below!

I've uploaded the poster I recently presented at IMFAR, "Resolution of ambiguous homographs in individuals with autism: An ERP study", to my Publications page. Thanks to all of you who stopped by to see it!
The Johns Hopkins media relations office has issued a press release about my recently published paper, "Linguistic and Non-Linguistic Semantic Processing in Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An ERP Study". You can read the full story from Johns Hopkins Medicine here, and a shorter story from JHU Hub here.
My recent paper in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders has now been published online. You can see the full citation, and access the publisher's website, on my Publications page.
I now have a full-text view-only version of my manuscript recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, entitled "Linguistic and Non-Linguistic Semantic Processing in Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An ERP Study". A link is available here.
Pleased to announce that I've just had a manuscript accepted for publication in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders! It's titled "Linguistic and Non-Linguistic Semantic Processing in Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An ERP Study" and is co-authored by Mariya Chernenok, Barry Gordon, and Kerry Ledoux. In this study we used linguistic and non-linguistic stimuli (pairs of words and pairs of pictures, respectively) in a semantic priming paradigm to determine whether a language-specific deficit in semantic processing exists for individuals with ASD. I'll post a link to the publisher's website on my Publications page once the online version is available.
I am pleased announce that I have accepted a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Vermont (UVM), beginning in August 2017! As a UVM alumna I am excited to be rejoining the institution that gave me my start in research. Things certainly have a way of coming full circle! In addition to teaching I will be continuing my work in autism and language processing using neuroimaging techniques, and will be collaborating with faculty in the departments of Neurological Sciences, Psychiatry, and Radiology. I'm honored to be a part of a vibrant research community and to be coming home to UVM.
