Dr. Mona Ebrahimipour, PhD

Mona was welcomed to the lab in June 2017 as invited researcher from the University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences, Iran, where she held a tenure-track position as assistant professor. She also had extensive clinical experience as a speech-language pathologist in both pediatric and adult settings. Her main research interests involve speech, language, and cognitive-communication in adults. She also has expertise in child speech and language functions and the development of cross-linguistic assessment tools. During Mona’s term as a lab associate, we sought to merge our interests and expertise. The primary project that came to fruition involved inquiry into pediatric feeding and communication development. We subsequently published an initial article (see publications) in the area. Mona continues to collaborate on publications in the lab, while she remains in Ottawa working as a speech-language pathologist at Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital.
