Dr. Parish-Morris investigates social communication, specifically how vocal communication develops in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder. She uses computational approaches and machine learning to identify objective and reliable behavioral markers for use in screening, treatment and intervention response tracking, and to advance biological research.
Dr. Miller's research focuses on the diagnostic and classification issues most pressing to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research, including differentiating ASD from other genetic and psychiatric conditions, diagnosis across the lifespan, and early identification and screening.
Dr. Wallis explores socio-demographic disparities in the diagnosis of developmental disorders and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and the process of screening for these conditions in pediatric primary care. She aims to develop and test strategies to improve developmental outcomes for all children and to bridge gaps in identification and care for low-income and minority children and girls with developmental delays and autism spectrum disorder.
