Meghan Darling-White is an Assistant Professor in SLHS. She earned her PhD from Purdue University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her long-term research goal is to develop and validate theoretically driven, data-based interventions that have an impact on functional speech production skills in individuals with motor speech disorders. Specifically, she is interested in understanding the relationship between respiratory behavior during speech production and speech production skills, like speech naturalness and intelligibility. This requires a multi-faceted approach that includes the collection and analysis of kinematic, acoustic, and perceptual data. Dr. Darling-White has extensive experience working with both developmental and degenerative motor speech disorders, particularly cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease.
