Research Interests

My research broadly focuses on the overall well-being, and factors that promote the well-being of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. My master's thesis was on drivers with autism and focused on understanding the unique driving profile of autistic drivers. My dissertation will focus on understanding and assessing emotional well-being in individuals with specific learning disabilities and intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as exploring mastery motivation in individuals with Wiliams syndrome.
