Current Job: Associate Professor, Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders, New York University
“The interdisciplinary training in Cognitive Science at JHU was crucial for my career as a researcher who works on developing theoretical and basic science insights and translating them into approaches to support language-based rehabilitation. In part, this is because of the very strong empirical and theoretical training I had in relating theoretical linguistics to accounts of language processing. In part, it was because of the methodological and computational toolkit that I developed in the program. But probably the most critical component was learning to see the same problem from various perspectives and to see how those perspectives relate to one another. This training has allowed me to naturally extend my research program to integrate cognitive science with pressing questions regarding communicative disorders.”
