2016 Research Live! Finalists Announced
The Graduate College invites you to join them for the Annual Research Live! competition on Tuesday, November 15 from 4-6 PM. The event will be held at Stage 5 at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Fourteen finalists will explain their graduate work to a general audience in 3 minutes with only 2 slides. A panel of judges will determine who takes the First, Second and Third Prize. Attendees vote for the People’s Choice winner. This event is free and open to the public.
The Department of Speech and Hearing Science will be represented by PhD student Christina Bronson-Lowe. Christina's work focuses on using measures developed from theories of fractals and chaos to investigate motor control and motor learning, particularly in the elderly. The goal is to apply this knowledge to improve therapies for dysphagia. Christina also has a strong clinical interest in speech-language pathologists' contributions to end-of-life care, including supporting patients and families with feeding decisions and communication. Congratulations, Christina!
