Professional Summary

I am an early-stage researcher rooted in clinical practice. My questions are informed by 15 years of clinical experience. My overarching goal is to inform current clinical practice in speech-language pathology with immediately applicable research that demonstrates how to efficiently and effectively quantify intelligibility and acoustic correlates of speech intelligibility. Participants in my research are those with dysarthria secondary to Parkinson's disease or other acquired neurogenic etiology, as well as healthy volunteers for comparison.

My lab is in development during AY 2019-20 and we hope to be taking participants soon.

I have experience teaching a variety of courses within the Communication Sciences and Disorders curriculum as well as general neuroscience courses for Allied Health Professions and pre-medical students. Some of these include:

  • Independent Research Study
  • Neural Bases of Communication
  • Neural Mechanisms of Speech, Hearing & Language (Case Based Learning)
  • Pre-Clinical Observation
  • Management and Assessment of Voice Disorders
  • Speech Science: Anatomy & Physiology, Speech & Hearing
  • Capstone in CSD
  • Dysphagia
  • Advanced Clinical Practicum
  • Introductory Clinical Practicum
