Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology & Anatomical Sciences
Dr. Aldridge is doing research focused on the development, evolution, and variation of brain morphology. At the center of this research is the relationship between the various component structures of the brain and factors influencing those relationships, both normal and pathological. She uses an integrative approach to the study of morphology, using 3D morphometric methods in analysis of medical imaging data from infant, juvenile, and adult humans, non-human primates, and other animal models. She is also involved in studying the relationship between the developing face and developing brain in various neurodevelopmental disorders, including craniosynostosis and autism spectrum disorders.
