Sept 2011 – present: PhD Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences: City University of New York Graduate Center.
I have completed seven semesters of graduate level coursework, including classes in statistics, instrumentation, speech science, speech perception and phonology. I have also taken classes in linguistics at NYU and the cognitive neuroscience of aging at Columbia. My second level project focused on mathematical techniques for analyzing tongue shape data from ultrasound imaging. In addition, I have been involved in a number of lab projects, both in the speech lab and in other labs in the department.
2003 – 2007: University of Bath BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology with industrial placement (2:1)
During my four-year undergraduate degree I completed courses in neuroscience, genetics, virology, physiology, molecular biology and biomedical ethics, among others. My undergraduate final project focused on designing primers for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) experiment on yeast genetics.
