Larissa D'Abreu

Larissa is a third-year graduate student in the Clinical Child Psychology doctoral program, working primarily as the lab manager of the Emotion & Coping Lab with Dr. Danny McIntosh, but also collaborates on projects at JFK in the University of Colorado Denver medical school. Larissa is interested in automatic emotion detection, classification, and mimicry, and when those processes fail, particularly in children with autism spectrum disorder. She hopes to apply this research to develop new, lower-cost behavioral treatments for individuals with ASD and others with social difficulties.
