Janet is an assistant professor in Speech and Hearing Science. She received her Ph.D. from Purdue University (2017) and is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist. Her research focuses on the relationship between language and speech motor control in children with developmental language disorder, speech sound disorder, and childhood apraxia of speech. She is interested in how domain general cognitive mechanisms such as timing, coordination, and sequencing account for strengths and weaknesses in language, speech, and motor domains across diagnostic categories. Janet’s research investigates how domain general cognitive mechanisms contribute to strengths and weaknesses observed in language, speech, and motor domains in children with speech and language disorders.
