Biography/Description of Research:

As a speech-language pathologist and rehabilitation scientist, I focus on development and evaluation of neuroplasticity-based treatments for language and cognitive disorders resulting from neurologic disease. My research includes investigation of intensive comprehensive treatment approaches, as well as the use of exercise and brain stimulation as adjuvants to traditional treatment. Additional interests include dose-response relationships, as well as behavioral and neural predictors of treatment response. The overarching goals of my research are to: 1) develop clinically translatable treatments that yield generalizable and lasting effects and 2) develop clinically accessible ways of identifying who will acquire benefit from a specific treatment approach.
