I am interested in how speech, language, and communication skills are affected by neurological impairments such as stroke and dementia. Working with Brian MacWhinney, I am involved in creating shared databases for research in these and other related areas. Using and improving computer-based tools for language transcription and analysis is also a big focus of my work.
