 Translating thoughts into spoken words is a seemingly effortless ability, one easily taken for granted, yet speech production is a fascinating and remarkably complex process. My research focuses on central and peripheral correlates of speech production, and how breakdowns in these intricate networks contribute to speech disorders such as stuttering and dysarthria.

I joined the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences as an Assistant Professor in August 2018. I received my B.S. and M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology and Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience at Purdue University.
