Dr. Pandey is a pediatric neuropsychologist and scientist at the Center for Autism Research (CAR) as well as a clinical assistant professor of Psychology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

After receiving her bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2001 from the University of Rochester, she worked as a research assistant at The Kennedy Krieger Institute at John's Hopkins University on projects studying infants at risk for developing autism and other developmental disorders. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2008. Working under the supervision of Deborah Fein, PhD, at the University of Connecticut, Dr. Pandey ran a younger sibling study, worked on a number of projects investigating the M-CHAT as an effective screening tool for autism spectrum disorders in toddlers, and conducted comprehensive autism evaluations.

She completed her clinical internship at the Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., with a particular focus on neurodevelopmental disorders and comprehensive neuropsychological assessment of children and adolescents with high functioning autism. She came to CAR to complete her postdoctoral fellowship and remained on as one of the supervising clinicians for deep clinical characterization of participants coming through various research protocols. Dr. Pandey has a special interest in the early identification and diagnosis of ASD, clinical phenotyping, and brain-behavior relationships that impact diagnosis and treatment outcome and plays a clinical role on a number of infant and toddler as well as school-age studies at CAR.
