The Speech Neuroscience Lab at the University of South Carolina welcomes Stacey Sangtian as a new PhD student. Student Stacey Sangtian is an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist who earned her B.S. from the College of Charleston and her M.S.P. from the University of South Carolina. During her master's, Stacey was the recipient of an ASHA SPARC Award, the MSP Outstanding Student Award in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and was selected to participate in the ASHA Minority Student Leadership Program. As the new doctoral student, Stacey's research is working toward understanding the brain mechanisms of speech motor control and their impairment in patients with post-stroke aphasia. Stacey hopes to use her clinical experiences to inform her approach in addressing clinically relevant research questions in the field.
