Carolyn Novaleski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at Michigan State University. She received her Ph.D. in Hearing and Speech Sciences at Vanderbilt University and pursued postdoctoral training in chemosensory sciences at the Monell Chemical Senses Center. To support her previous research and training, she successfully competed for two NIH Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (F31 and F32) through the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.

The focus of Dr. Novaleski’s research is understanding the role of the larynx in respiratory function, chronic cough, and other upper airway disorders. In particular, she investigates the effects of inhaled volatile chemical stimuli on laryngeal reflexes and cough physiology using cough aerodynamics, as well as chemically-elicited airway sensory processing using human psychophysics.
