Bridget Catherine Gamber joined the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program and the CDCL in the fall of 2010. She completed her undergraduate studies with honors in Psychology and Studio Art at the University of Miami. Bridget conducted her undergraduate thesis under the direction of Heather Henderson and Peter Mundy. The project assessed gaze following deficits in adolescents with high-functioning autism using eye-tracking technology. She has worked with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities since 2005.
Bridget is currently focused on exploring prodromal symptoms in infants at elevated risk for autism spectrum disorders. Specifically, she is interested in examining differences in joint-attention development and their relation to language and diagnostic outcomes. Identifying markers of developmental delay will facilitate early detection and intervention for individuals with autism.
