I am a postdoctoral researcher in Computational Linguistics and Neurolinguistics at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

My research is dedicated to identifying the relationship between the brain and language and providing opportunities to patients with aphasia by reducing aphasia symptoms.

I believe it is critical to develop automated, personalized, high-quality speech and language assessments, diagnoses, and prognoses and empower these patients to compensate for speech and language disorders in everyday communication.

I leverage Natural Language Processing (NLP), Structural and Functional MRI, EEG, and acoustics analysis of speech and language to offer a quick, automated diagnosis and prognosis for patients with aphasia.
