His Developmental psychology research includes elements of Cognition and Set. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tongue, Tongue protrusion and Action in addition to Imitation.

His Autism research incorporates elements of Multimedia, Interpersonal relationship, Randomized controlled trial and Reading. His work deals with themes such as Visual perception and Cognitive psychology, which intersect with Nonverbal communication. His Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Video technology and Imitative learning.

His most cited work include:

  • Increasing reading and communication skills in children with autism through an interactive multimedia computer program (219 citations)
  • Psychological follow-up study of 5-year-old ICSI children (103 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Imitation, Autism and Cognition are his primary areas of study. His research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Recall, Gesture and Reading. His study in Cognitive psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Language acquisition, Joint attention, Event-related potential and Memory development.

In general Imitation study, his work on Cognitive imitation often relates to the realm of Longitudinal study, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
