Research Description:

My research interests focus on developing and validating behavioral measures for assessing language performance in individuals with aphasia. I aim to create tools that are (1) psychometrically robust and diagnostically meaningful; and (2) inform our understanding of linguistic processes and corresponding neural substrates.
