Education: I completed my graduate degree at the Western University, London, Ontario, Canada, after which I pursued my postdoctoral work in stroke recovery at the Aphasia and Neurolinguistics Research Laboratory, Northwestern University. Before moving to the University of Arizona, I conducted language and neuroimaging research at the Rotman Research Institute, University of Toronto.


Research: My current research examines cognitive and neural factors which affect language functions, and how these change across life-span and are influenced by stroke, brain injury and neurodegenerative disorders. In my work, I use combination of cognitive measures and multimodal neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, EEG/ERPs, and MEG). I am also interested recovery of function, and treatment approaches involving speech-language therapy in combination with noninvasive brain stimulation techniques, such as TMS and tDCS.
