Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I received my PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) from Northwestern University under the supervision of Dr. Cynthia K. Thompson and completed postdoctoral training in cognitive neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Maria Luisa Gorno-Tempini at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) - Memory and Aging Center.  The neurobiology of language and behavior (NoLaB) lab focuses on the two lines of research: [1] the neurocognitive correlates of the language system and [2] its relation with emotions and other cognitive systems. Under my direction the NoLaB lab supports several ongoing studies and outside collaborations, listed here. One of the main priorities of the NoLaB is building a sustainable, welcoming and all-inclusive environment for all students. This is especially important during the earliest stages of academic career, when successful training of undergraduate students is tightly dependent on the fine process of pruning of theoretical knowledge by selected, empirically driven, examples from clinical practice. The NoLaB research platform is designed to encompass, not just basics of scientific method -
principles of data collection, data analyses, and data interpretation, but also importance of multidisciplinary work ("collaborative side projects"), open science (“NeuroCausal”), and continuous education. Together, we strive to build a fully integrative lab atmosphere, complementary to students' future clinical and academic careers.
