I am a licensed speech-language pathologist. My clinical focus aligns with my research interests in child language impairments and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and motivates my research on language impairments in children with ASD. Before my current position, I have worked with a wide range of patients in my graduate training, including young and school-aged children with developmental language disorder, ASD, Down Syndrome, and Hearing Loss, and adults with aphasia, Traumatic Brain Injury, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's diseases. In my clinical practice, I aim to support my patient and their families by using family-centered intervention approach and evidence-based practice.
