Research Interests

Ricarda Braukmann is studying infants at-risk for autism by virtue of having an older sibling diagnosed with this condition. The research is part of a European project that aims to increase the current knowledge on early signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and possible treatments (EU-AIMS). Throughout her PhD, Ricarda will follow infants at-risk longitudinally and investigate possible early risk markers of ASD. The project is a collaboration between the UMC Sint Radboud, the Donders Institute for Brain Cognition and Behavior and the Baby Research Center Nijmegen. In addition, the research will be conducted in collaboration with other research institutes in Europe (i.e., University Medical Center Utrecht (NL); Babylab Birkbeck, University of London (UK); Karolinska Institutet (SE)).
