Katherine Aboud, Ph.D.
Research Assistant Professor of Special Education
Overview of Interests
The goal of Dr. Aboud's research program is to characterize and enhance adult learning through high-definition, multimodal brain imaging and neuromodulation, with a specific focus on reading and related disorders. To accomplish this, she relies on her expertise in multimodal neuroimaging, neurocognitive models of reading and related disorders, and non-invasive brain stimulation. This convergence of expertise has resulted in the following primary arms of her research program:
1.) Individualized, high-definition (fused MRI-EEG) brain characterization of reading processes;
2.) Individualized, high-definition brain characterization of reading disorders; and
3.) Individualized, high-definition non-invasive brain stimulation to enhance learning from texts in populations with and without reading disorders.
