Research description:

I’m interested in characterizing individual cognitive-communication profiles for people with traumatic brain injury and using those differences to predict outcomes and target our interventions. Many of my current projects focus on the interactions between systems (e.g., memory, language, sleep) in producing real-world behavior and functional outcomes.
