April R. Levin is a pediatric neurologist and assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School. She received her Sc.B. from Brown University and her M.D. from Yale University School of Medicine. She completed residency training in pediatrics and child neurology, followed by a fellowship in behavioral neurology and autism spectrum disorder, at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Currently, her research focuses on developing electroencephalography-based biomarkers for autism spectrum disorder, which involves bridging a number of diverse fields (e.g., neuroscience, mathematics, psychology and computer science). Her long-term goal is to work as a clinician scientist to apply methods of quantitative neurophysiology to translate basic neurobiological findings into clinically relevant measures. This will help inform our ability to provide precise, individualized, mechanistically based diagnoses and treatments to children with a range of neurodevelopmental disorders.
