Jonathan D. Rodgers is research faculty with the Institute for Autism Research (IAR) at Canisius College, Buffalo NY. He has worked with the IAR for 11 years on development and validation of various psychosocial intervention programs for children with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder (HFASD) including a summer, school, and outpatient program. His interest in face processing and the emotion communication system led to initial work with eye-tracking as a method of studying these elements of behavior in children with HFASD. The current work represents an extension of this method and concept of research into non-human primates. It is an exciting opportunity to work with Team Ape and promote cross-departmental collaboration.
