    Collapse Overview
    Natacha Akshoomoff, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in pediatric neuropsychology. She has extensive expertise and experience in the diagnosis and assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and learning disorders (reading, math, writing). She also conducts assessments of children who are at risk for having learning and behavioral challenges, including children born preterm and children with certain medical and neurological conditions.

    Her research focuses on the interrelationships between brain development, genetic factors, and cognitive, behavioral, and academic outcomes. Her current research includes the neuropsychological consequences of very preterm birth, development of executive functions, neurobehavioral phenotypes associated with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders, and the longer term effects of prenatal exposure to alcohol and other drugs. She also participates in clinical trials and multi-site follow-up studies of pediatric patients with genetic disorders and with early risk factors.

    In her role as a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Dr. Akshoomoff is involved in training graduate students in the San Diego State University/University of California, San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. She is also active in teaching undergraduate and graduate students, residents, fellows, and postdoctoral scholars at UC San Diego.

    Dr. Akshoomoff earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology track) from the San Diego State University/UC San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, with a clinical psychology internship at the University of Florida (Neuropsychology track). She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in developmental neuropsychology at the University of California, San Diego with Dr. Joan Stiles. She was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology program) at Georgia State University in Atlanta before joining the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego.
