Research Summary

Fred focuses on the exploration of new technologies and methodologies for enriching both our understanding of ASD and the lives of children with ASD. His current research interests include using eye-tracking to study visual social attention in ASD, computational modeling to describe gaze patterns in terms of perceptual characteristics, the development of gaze contingent interactive technologies, using electrodermal activity to index autonomic arousal in infants and toddlers, and the development of specialized software applications for both education and augmentative and alternative communication.
