Educational Background

Curriculum Vitae

Undergraduate Classes Taught

  • SLHS 3210 – Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech Mechanism
  • SLHS 3950 – Research Methods in Speech and Language Sciences 
  • SLHS 4030 – Language Disorders of Adults 
  • SLHS 4850 – Bilingualism

Research Interests

I employ bilingualism and post-stroke aphasia as platforms for investigating the cognitive mechanisms underlying word recognition and retrieval in adults. Specifically, I use behavioral and electrophysiological measures to evaluate:
• dynamics of spoken and written word recognition
• the relationship between language production and comprehension
• error monitoring in speech production
• bidirectional cross-linguistic transfer
• desirable difficulties in language learning and rehabilitation
