College of Staten Island - New York, USA

    Christina Hagedorn is an assistant professor of Linguistics and director of the Motor Speech Laboratory at the College of Staten Island (City University of New York). Her research focuses primarily on disordered speech production. Her work aims to shed light on the precise nature of articulatory breakdowns in disordered speech and how this can inform theories of unimpaired speech production, as well as lead to refinement of the therapeutic techniques used to address these speech deficits. Her current research focuses on both articulatory coordination patterns in apraxic speech and articulatory preservation and compensation mechanisms exhibited by oral and base of tongue cancer patients.
