I’m a speech pathologist and doctoral student in the Laboratory for the Study of Upper Airway Dysfunction at Columbia University. My research focuses on the rehabilitation of impairments in airway protection, namely cough (dystussia) and swallowing (dysphagia) dysfunction, to improve health outcomes and quality of life. I also have interests in meta-science, statistics, and how these practices affect the transparency, rigor, and replicability of science. Clinically, I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, specializing in the assessment and treatment of dysphagia across a variety of patient populations, including neurological, oncological, gastrointestinal, and respiratory disorders.
