I’m a postdoctoral research associate with the Novel Language Intervention project of the ACE grant.  Currently, my responsibilities are to provide the two therapies that we are comparing in a randomized clinical trial.  From a start majoring in linguistics, to working at a speech research startup firm for a decade or so, I moved into the clinical side of the speech field and specialized in teaching social skills to individuals with autism and related social communication challenges.  Now, my own research focuses on speech production in children with autism.  For hobbies, I knit as much as I possibly can, make (some of ) my own jewelry, and coach rowing on the Charles River.  I have three cats and a husband, all of whom like to spend a lot of time outdoors.
