Erin Kang, assistant professor, was awarded the 2022 SRCD Small Grants Program for Early Career Scholars. The grant will support research understanding of how differences in neural and behavioral presentations of flexible thinking in children on the autism spectrum relate to clinical presentation.

Dr. Kang’s research focuses on integrating science and practice by understanding processes that shape clinical presentations in youth on the autism spectrum, investigating neural mechanisms of clinical phenotypes and plasticity in autism, and applying these insights to evidence-based interventions for supporting social functioning.
