Research Focus:

Dr. Kushki's research focuses on development of novel pattern recognition and machine learning techniques for analysis of biological and behavioural data in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related neurodevelopmental conditions. The goal of this research is to improve our understanding of the neurobiological correlates ASD, and better characterize the variability in the spectrum.

Dr. Kushki also designs technologies that improve the quality of life and care for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), respect the uniqueness of children with ASD, and make evidence-based treatments accessible to a larger and more diverse population.
