Sarah joined the lab in September 2016 following a postdoctoral fellowship at Vanderbilt University. She did her PhD in neuroscience at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. For her doctoral work, Sarah used fMRI to examine neural changes in mutlisensory speech perception in aphasia and healthy aging. At UW Sarah is co-mentored by Adrian KC Lee in Speech and Hearing Sciences and Wendy Stone in Psychology. Sarah's focus in the lab is using psychophysics and neuroimaging to understand the behavioral and neural mechanisms of how children with autism process sensory (especially multisensory) information and how this relates to difficulties in speech and communication.
