Anna studies how the changes in the brain that occur with age affect how a person understands speech -- specifically when listening through a cochlear implant. She is interested in how specific cognitive abilities (such as attention and working memory) influence an individual's ability to extract meaning from sentences presented in challenging environments. She works in the labs of Dr. Sandra Gordon-Salant and Dr. Matthew Goupell at the University of Maryland as a Ph.D. student in the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science program. She received a B.A. in Linguistics and a Master's in Computational Linguistics from the University of Washington. She received her Doctorate in Audiology (AuD) from the University of Arizona in 2017.
