Research Interests

Jennifer Zuk studies factors in early childhood that shape the trajectory of speech, language, and reading acquisition, with the aim to facilitate positive outcomes for children susceptible to neurodevelopmental disabilities. Her research employs behavioral and neuroimaging tools with children from infancy through school age to study associations between the brain and speech, language, and reading abilities, as well as environmental experience (such as music). Her interdisciplinary approach bridges experience in clinical speech-language pathology, developmental cognitive neuroscience, music cognition, and education.
