Prospective Grad Students

Thanks for your interest in my research! I am considering applications for new PhD students for the next academic year. Please contact me directly at for more information. It is a good idea to first read the Projects and Publications sections of the lab website to see if you are interested in the kind of work that we are doing.

There are two ways to apply to work with me. You can apply to the Hearing and Speech Sciences department or to the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science program, both at the University of Maryland. If you are interested in coming to UMD, you should also take a look at the website for the Language Science Center, the largest and most diverse group of language scientists in North America.

Many students at UMD are co-advised, so I encourage you to contact me if you are interested in working with me and another faculty member at UMD. All PhD students are funded, although sources of funding differ from student to student and year to year.

I look forward to hearing from you.
