Research interests:

In my lab we research the neurobiology of language, with particular emphasis on reading. A major source of our external funding is a K99/R00 "Pathway to Independence Award" I received to study how word recognition unfolds in the brain across space (using functional magnetic resonance imaging) and time (using magnetoencephalography). I am also Co-PI for a project funded through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin to study the brain basis of a genetic marker associated with impaired reading.

My postdoctoral advisor was Jeffrey R. Binder, M.D. My graduate work at the University of Iowa, Neuroscience Program, was performed under the mentorship of Thomas J. Grabowski, Jr., M.D. (currently the director of the Integrated Brain Imaging Center at the University of Washington). The title of my dissertation was Distinguishing the Neural Bases of Lexical Access.
