Katelyn (Katie) Gerwin is a post-doctoral research associate in the Developmental Speech Laboratory directed by Dr. Bridget Walsh. She is interested in the neural underpinnings of speech and language processing in children who stutter, children with speech sound disorders, and children with both disorders. Her research focuses on the development of phonological processing in these clinical populations and how this development may combine with other factors to predict stuttering recovery and persistence.
Katie received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Speech-Language Pathology from Purdue University. She completed her clinical fellowship in the M.D. Steer Speech, Language, and Swallowing Clinic concentrating on assessment and treatment for individuals who stutter across the lifespan.
