Brielle C. Stark, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Speech and Hearing Sciences Department and Program in Neuroscience faculty at Indiana University. Dr. Stark completed her doctoral research in Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge (UK) as a Gates Cambridge Trust Scholar. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for the Study of Aphasia Recovery. She is interested in modeling and predicting language reorganization and recovery in adult neurogenic communication disorders, in particular post-stroke aphasia, using structural and functional brain markers acquired from MRI.
