Jed has been doing research on autism for nearly 10 years. Much of his work to date has focused on the identification of risk factors that differentiate infants who later develop autism from other infants. Jed worked with the Utah Autism Research Program during his undergraduate studies and after receiving his degree from the University of Utah. His graduate training at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill focused on early brain and behavior development during the infant and toddler period. He then spent 2 years at the California Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral scholar, learning new techniques to broaden his program of research. Jed’s broader research examines basic developmental processes that contribute to individual differences in social communication during the infant and toddler period. His work has been published in several academic journals including, most recently, the American Journal of Psychiatry.
