Message
I am an Assistant Professor in Department of Human Sciences at University of Tsukuba. I received my doctoral degree at Texas A&M University in August 2015, with a concentration in autism spectrum disorders and applied behavior analysis. Currently, I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst-Doctoral level. My research focuses on the use of technology to improve social-communication skills of individuals with autism spectrum and other developmental disabilities. Both my clinical and research experiences have involved working with family members and diverse individuals with disabilities. From Fall 2011 to Spring 2014, I was a behavioral therapist at the Autism clinic. I also provided supervision to therapists at the Autism clinic. The majority of the clients with whom I have worked are aged 6 and younger and a large proportion of the clients are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. As a behavioral therapist, I utilized evidence-based practices to promote communication, behavior, and social skills of individuals with autism. Further, my research has involved providing and evaluating training provided to caregivers to teach them to implement evidence-based practices. I have been actively engaged in research, writing, and professional presentations during my doctoral program, particularly related to young children and their caregivers. The thrust of my unique research agenda relates to social and communication interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The majority of my publications report single-case research investigating the effectiveness of interventions utilizing augmentative and alternative communication systems to improve social and communication skills of young children with autism spectrum disorders.
