My research focuses on face-to-face communication and multimodal cues people use in everyday conversation. I am particularly interested in the integration of speech, representational gestures, and mouth movements in both healthy population and people with aphasia and various degrees of apraxia. During my PhD, I will investigate what are the brain regions supporting multimodal speech processing and what are the characteristics of the individuals who benefit from (or are adversely affected by) the presence of multimodal cues. Currently, I am collaborating with the MOSS Rehabilitation Research Institute (Philadelphia, USA) on a project on multimodal effects on comprehension in left hemisphere stroke patients.
