I am an Associate Professor at the College of Staten Island (CUNY), with appointments in the doctoral programs in Linguistics and Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at The Graduate Center (CUNY).
I completed my Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Southern California in 2015, and my M.S. in Communicative Sciences and Disorders at New York University in 2017. In 2018, I received my certificate of clinical competence in Speech and Language Pathology (CCC-SLP).
My research focuses on speech production in individuals with speech impairment. Given that I am both a linguist and a speech and language pathologist, my work aims to shed light on the precise nature of articulatory breakdowns in disordered speech and how this can inform theories of unimpaired speech production, as well as lead to refinement of therapeutic techniques.
