I am a board certified pediatric neuropsychologist and an associate clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the University of California, Irvine. I am the Director of our Neurodevelopmental Assessment Clinic, which evaluates children and adolescents with attention, learning, and social-emotional difficulties. I am also the Associate Director of UC Irvine's Down Syndrome Program, which is involved in several NIH-funded studies that aim to identify the biomarkers and cognitive changes associated with Alzheimer's disease in persons with Down Syndrome. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in health psychology at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. I was trained in Applied Behavioral Analysis at the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University.

My clinical services include the assessment of autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and traumatic brain injury. My forensic services include the assessment of individuals with developmental disabilities who have suffered psychological, physical, or medical trauma and the assessment of children and adults who have suffered traumatic brain injuries. I can conduct assessments in English or Mandarin Chinese.
