Miriam Beauchamp, PhD is Assistant Professor in developmental neuropsychology at the University of Montreal (Canada) where she leads the ABCs developmental neuropsychology laboratory (www.abcs.umontreal.ca). She is also a researcher at the Ste-Justine Hospital Research Center and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. Between 2006-2009 she completed CIHR-funded post-doctoral training at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute with Dr. Vicki Anderson. In 2009 she received a Career Development Award from the Quebec Health Resarch Funds (FRQS) for her research program in pediatric traumatic brain injury. In 2015, she was presented with the International Neuropsychological Society Early Career Award in recognition of her work in the area of pediatric traumatic brain injury. The work conducted in her lab focuses globally on cerebral, cognitive and social development from infancy, through childhood and adolescence. Her clinical research program focuses specifically on studying advanced neuroimaging techniques for improving lesion detection after childhood traumatic brain injury and measuring cognitive and social outcomes. The information gleaned from her work informs the development of novel social cognition assessment methods and targeted interventions for children at-risk for cognitive, social or behavioural problems.
