Dr. Brittany G. Travers joined the faculty of University of Wisconsin-Madison in August of 2014 as an assistant professor in the Occupational Therapy Program in the Department of Kinesiology. In her first years as faculty, she has established a strong track record of independent funding and publication, and she was bestowed the Young Investigator Award by the International Society for Autism Research in May of 2016. Dr. Travers’s research program, housed at the Waisman Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus (http://www.waisman.wisc.edu/motor), combines neuroimaging measures with quantitative measures of motor function, cognition, and daily living skills in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Her work is inherently interdisciplinary, as Dr. Travers is a trained cognitive psychologist who received interdisciplinary postdoctoral training in developmental disorders and biomedical physics.
