Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine
I am involved in both clinical and research activities at NYU Langone. As a trained speech–language pathologist, I evaluate and treat patients with acquired speech–language and cognitive-linguistic disorders secondary to stroke, traumatic brain injury, or neurologic disease.
I also run the Neurolinguistics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory at Rusk Rehabilitation, where my research combines behavioral speech–language treatment for aphasia with activities to promote neuroplasticity, such as noninvasive brain stimulation and aerobic exercise. My research focuses on aphasia rehabilitation after stroke, with the broad aim of helping stroke survivors living with aphasia to improve language and communication and quality of life.
Additionally, at NYU Langone I coordinate the Aphasia Community Groups Program and the Rusk Rehabilitation Intensive Comprehensive Aphasia Program. As an affiliated faculty member in the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, I teach graduate students about aphasia.
