Dr Bruno is a translational researcher at the interface of developmental cognitive neuropsychology and neurobiology. Her research aims to understand the basis of typical and atypical brain development. An overarching goal of her work is to understand when, how and why individuals with neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders fall off the trajectory of typical brain development. She works in close collaboration with computational researchers and clinicians, serving as a bridge to translate cutting edge science to solve problems of great clinical need such as improving early diagnosis and identifying meaningful subtypes to facilitate personalized interventions. To address these aims, her work combines information from genetics, brain imaging and deep behavioral phenotyping using computational methods to understand complex, multidimensional phenotypes.
