Research interests

My research

I am studying the presentation and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders in adulthood. In particular, I am interested in identifying and objectively measuring the core features of autism spectrum disorder in adulthood to improve our understanding assist with diagnoses. I am currently working on a tool to assist with adult ASD diagnoses. You can see my Three Minute Thesis presentation here: 3 Minute Thesis Final - 3MT - Clare Holmes.

Other interests

I am also interested in comorbid diagnoses among people with disabilities and using social media to engage with the academic and general community about research. As a result, I created and help manage the Flinders University Autism Research Facebook page and Twitter account (@FlindersASD) to promote understanding about autism and information about autism-related events and research. I also manage the social media accounts for the Australasian Society for Autism Research on Facebook and Twitter (@ASfAR_autism) and engage with researchers, clinicians and people with autism through my own Twitter account (@ClareKHolmes) to gather and share the latest findings and insights about autism spectrum disorder.
