      Biography

      Dr. Akshoomoff received her B.S. in Psychobiology from UCLA. She received her Ph.D. from the UCSD/SDSU Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology and completed her predoctoral internship in clinical neuropsychology at the University of Florida. Her postdoctoral fellowship in developmental cognitive neuroscience with Dr. Joan Stiles was funded by the McDonnell-Pew Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and the NICHD. After five years as an Assistant Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, she returned to UCSD in 2000 to pursue her research interests in autism and pediatric neuropsychology. Dr. Akshoomoff is a faculty member in the UCSD/SDSU Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology Track) and the UCSD Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program. She is a Clinical Neuropsychologist at the Autism Discovery Institute at Rady Children's Hospital. Dr. Akshoomoff is the Director of the Brain and Early Experiences Laboratory located in the Center for Human Development and member of the Executive Committee of the Center for Human Development.

      Research Interests

      Dr. Akshoomoff's research focuses on the interrelationship between brain development, genetic factors, and cognitive, behavioral, and academic outcomes. She is particularly interested in the neuropsychological consequences of very preterm birth, and the neurobehavioral phenotypes associated with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

      Clinical Focus

      Dr. Akshoomoff is actively involved in autism services and neuropsychological assessment at Rady Children's Hospital through Developmental Services and Child Psychiatry. She teaches seminars in neuropsychological development and developmental disorders and provides assessment workshops and supervision for graduate students in the Clinical Psychology JDP and the Clinical Psychology internship program, and postdoctoral fellows in Clinical Neuropsychology and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She also supervises undergraduate research at UCSD.
