While getting my master's degree in communication sciences and disorders, I developed a passion to learn about what causes, maintains and aggravates stuttering. Following this passion led me to study it in doctoral and postdoctoral research. Presently, I am interested in investigating a multifactorial stuttering model, which takes into account emotional, linguistic and motor factors that may impact onset and maintenance of stuttering.
