Our research is primarily focused on the overlap, assessment and treatment of anxiety, trauma and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This work explores sources and manifestations of stress in individuals with ASD to inform the development and testing of new clinical assessment tools and psychotherapies. More broadly, we explore psychiatric comorbidity in ASD and how improved recognition, prevention and treatment of such comorbidity—through community settings—may improve functional outcomes and reduce suffering for individuals with ASD.
