Ph.D. Graduate Students
Lee Jung An, MS., completed her Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Speech Pathology and Audiology in Korea. She is currently a doctoral student in the Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences Department at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her research involves the behavioral and neurophysiological processing of English /r/ and /l/ by native American, Korean and Japanese listeners.
Reethee Madona Antony, M.A., received Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Speech/Language Pathology from Sri Ramachandra University, Chennai, India. She is currently a Ph.D. student in the Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences Program at the CUNY Graduate Center with a Science Fellowship. She is a research assistant in the Auditory Evoked Potentials Lab directed by Dr. Brett Martin. Her current interests include the neurophysiologic processing of aspiration in American, Tamil and Hindi listeners with normal hearing or with hearing loss.
Lisa Goldin, MS, CCC-A has worked as a cochlear implant audiologist since 2002 when she received a M.S. in audiology from Hunter College. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Speech-Language-Hearing sciences at the CUNY Graduate Center where she works in the Audiology & Auditory Evoked Potentials Laboratory. She is interested in studying neurophysiologic processing of sound in children with normal hearing and in adults and children with cochlear implants.
Yining VictorZhou, M.A.(General Linguistics), M.S.(Hearing Impairment), M.S.(Speech-Language Pathology), M. Phil. (Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences), CCC-SLP, is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Department at the CUNY Graduate Center. His current research interests include neurophysiologic processing of lexical tones in individuals with normal hearing or with cochlear implants.
Wenjie Wang, MS., has been a graduate student in the Ph.D. program of Speech-Language-Hearing sciences since 2008 after receiving her M.S. in Physiopsychology from Beijing University in China. Her research involves the behavioral and neurophysiologic processing of frequency glides.
Derek Petti, Au.D., completed his audiology capstone project in this laboratory and will continue in the laboratory for his Ph.D. Topic TBD.
Chanie Monoker, M.S., received her masters degree in audiology from Brooklyn College. Her research will involve speech processing in listeners with and without a history of otitis media.
Melissa Monteiro, M.A., was trained at the All India Institute. Topic TBD.
Chiashin Cindy Shih, M.A., received her training in linguistics in Taiwan. Her research interest lies in the area of linguistic tone processing and learning.
Erica Richman, Au.D., has a degree in Audiology from the Long Island Consortium. Her research interests involve auditory processing disorder and remediation strategies.
