Associate Professor of Speech-Language Pathology. I work mainly with neurogenic communication and swallowing disorders; dementia and progressive aphasia is a special interest.
Coordinator of the following courses at the speech-language pathology study programme:
- General and specific medicine 5 (3.0 ECTS credits)
Medicine 1: Anatomy and Physiology (4.5 ECTS credits)
Language disorders in adults (4.5 ECTS credits)
- Research Seminars and Ethics (4.5 ECTS credits)
General research questions concern how acquired cognitive impairment affects word finding and writing skills, and how progressive aphasia syndromes are related to patterns of brain atrophy as revealed by magnetic resonance imaging. Current projects are aimed at investigating whether aspects of language processing can be used as diagnostic markers for cognitive decline and self-rating assessment methods for dysphagia.
