Research summary

My research aims to investigate how people with Autism  Spectrum Disorder (ASD) see the world differently and how this can affect the  way they behave. In particular I will investigate differences in auditory,  tactile and visual perception in ASD using psychophysics tasks. I will also  investigate the utility and underlying mechanisms of Multi-Sensory Environments  (MSE) using a MSE created here at Cardiff University.
