Dr. Bennett’s research interests include screening for medical and behavioral co-morbidities in individuals with developmental disabilities, with specific interest in improving screening and outcome measures for children with autism spectrum disorder.
Whitney Guthrie, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and scientist at the Center for Autism Research. Dr. Guthrie’s research focuses on the early developmental trajectories that characterize autism spectrum disorder with the ultimate goal of improving early detection and intervention.
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.
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. Juhi Pandey is a pediatric neuropsychologist in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and a scientist in the Center for Autism Research at CHOP. Her research focuses on autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Schultz's research involves using magnetic resonance imaging to understand brain mechanisms and to create biomarkers that predict who has autism spectrum disorder (ASD), who will develop the disorder, and who will respond well to different interventions. More recently, he has developed a technology and innovation lab to exploit advances in perceptual computing, in order to develop more robust measurements of quantitative traits.
Dr. Moser serves in a primarily clinical role at the Center for Autism Research on the Infant Brain Imaging Study, conducting clinical and diagnostic evaluations for infants, toddlers, and school-age children with and without autism spectrum disorder, as well as individuals with Down syndrome.
John Herrington is an associate professor of Psychology in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. He directs the Emotion and Developmental Laboratory, which focuses on emotion regulation difficulties in childhood, and in particular, among children with autism.
