I am an ASHA certified speech and language pathologist currently pursuing my doctoral degree in the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at New York University under the advisement of Dr. Tara McAllister. I work in Dr. McAllister’s Biofeedback Intervention Technology for Speech (BITS) Lab investigating perception and production in children with speech sound disorder. As a research rotation, I worked in Dr. Susannah Levi’s Acoustic Phonetics and Perception Lab on a perceptual training experiment. My general areas of research interest include acoustic and articulatory properties of speech sounds, perception of non-native phonemic contrasts, and perception and production in bilingual/bidialectal individuals. My dissertation research is titled “Establishing the Role of Sensorimotor Skills in Speech Development and Disorders” and is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIDCD Grant F31DC018197, PI: Kabakoff).
