Ph.D. Graduate Students
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.
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. Her research focuses on nasality.
Chiashin Shih Machado, M.A., received her training in Psychology and Language Sciences in London. Her research interest lies in the area of linguistic tone processing and learning.
Polina Shuminsky, Au.D. has practiced audiology since graduating with masters from Brooklyn College in 1999 and also holds a clinical doctorate degree in audiology since 2005. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Speech-Language-Hearing sciences at the CUNY Graduate Center. She is interested in investigating the effects of auditory training on behavioral and electrophysiological processing of speech in older adults with hearing impairment.
Erica Richman, Au.D., has a degree in Audiology from the Long Island Consortium. Her research interests involve auditory processing disorder and remediation strategies.
Jason Dunlap is an undergraduate research assistant studying speech-language pathology and audiology at CUNY Brooklyn College. He is a Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Scholar currently volunteering on several projects in the lab. His research interests include sensitivity to auditory stimuli and electrophysiological differences in populations with neurodevelopmental disorders.
