Jenny Roche, Ph.D. (Primary Investigator): I am starting an Assistant Professor position in the Speech pathology and Audiology program, in the College of Education and Health and Human Services. I am a Cognitive Psychologist by training, but have a number of interests related to low level speech perception, pragmatics, context, social & action dynamics, and affective speech during interactive communication. I am primarily interested in the cognitive mechanisms involved in successful and unsuccessful communication in both typically and atypically developed language users.I was a recent CLS (Center for Language Science) postdoc at the University of Rochester, working with Michael Tanenhaus and Florian Jaeger. I was awarded my Ph.D., in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Memphis with Rick Dale and received an M.A., from James Madison University in Cognitive Psychology and B.A., in Psychology with Michael D. Hall. For more information, please check out my personal website:
