Jacie joined the communication science and disorders PhD program to answer questions regarding neural mechanisms of speech processing associated with aging. She uses multimodal neuroimaging approaches (e.g., EEG, pupillometry, fMRI) to comprehensively assay the ascending auditory system and cognitive resources during listening to identify neural underpinnings of speech perception in noise in aging and hearing loss, with the goal of improving translational research. Her goals during the communication science and disorders PhD program are to improve her skills as an independent researcher to prepare her for a tenure-track research position in the future.
