Aphasia and Rehabilitation Lab
The primary focus of this lab is to work with people with aphasia – a language impairment that sometimes follows stroke – to better understand language processes and ways to improve aphasia treatment outcomes.
Interpersonal Neurophysiology Lab
The primary focus of this lab is to improve treatment approaches for people with fluency and motor speech disorders by better understanding how individual differences in language, emotion, and cognition contribute to the neurodevelopment of atypical speech motor control.

Language Learning & Bilingualism Lab
The primary focus of this lab is to understand how individual difference impacts language. Specifically vocabulary, grammar, and narrative learning outcomes. They investigate individual differences by studying individuals with different language learning capacity (i.e., typical learners and learners with language impairment) and individuals with various linguistic backgrounds (i.e., monolinguals and bilinguals)
Memory & Perception of Speech Lab
The primary focus of this lab is to investigate how linguistic experience shapes our perception of spoken language. Their methods combine behavioral with neuroimaging (fMRI, ERP) techniques to better understand the neural underpinnings of perceptual phenomena.
The primary focus of this lab is voice – in all its manifestations, including biomechanical, biological, perceptual-motor, social, emotional, artistic, and spiritual. Their projects incorporate a variety of technologies to investigate voice including computational modeling, in vivo, and human studies.
