Jenny’s Welcome to the Miscommunication and Dialogue Interaction Lab (MADI Lab) webpage. We are currently located on Kent State University’s main campus in three locations: Speech & Hearing Clinic (CPA Room - under construction), Research One Bldg (2nd floor, Room C), and Kent Hall (Folk Lab, Room 253) In the MADI Lab, undergraduate and graduate students work with Jenny Roche, PhD on topics related to how people (primarily neuro-typical adults) communicate and miscommunicate. In our lab, we study communication breakdown and how it is resolved. To do this we focus on things like perspective taking, tone of voice, behavioral alignment, and how social context shapes your communication style. The MADI Lab currently has three graduate students working independent research projects: Christine Suh, Ashley Ferguson, and Lindsay Vale.
