Research Summary

I am a clinically trained speech–language pathologist. The focus of my clinical work and research is on understanding, preventing, and treating swallowing disorders, also known as dysphagia. I use clinical research methods to improve swallowing ability and quality of life in patients whose swallowing function has changed as a result of medical conditions such as stroke, pulmonary disease, head or neck cancer, or spinal cord injury.

My current research goal is to develop treatment paradigms to improve upper airway dysfunction and swallowing efficiency in patients with head or neck cancer and patients with spinal cord injury.

In my research I use high-resolution manometry and videofluoroscopy to understand the pressure foundations of swallowing components in the healthy population, as well as head and neck cancer patients treated with chemoradiation.
