Priya is a PhD Candidate at SUTD- Augmented Human Lab. She is passionate about assistive technology, psycholinguistics and cognitive neurosciences. She holds a Master of Science degree in speech language pathology with academic background in child and adult language and motor speech disorders, neurology, psychology, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and cognition. She has worked extensively with children and adults with various cognitive communicative impairments.
At the Augmented Human Lab, her interests lie in advancing basic and applied technology with a view to enhancing real-world experiences in education and rehabilitation. Interdisciplinary design systems and implementing them to enhance sensory-motor, cognitive and communication abilities in typical population and in rehabilitation of persons with disabilities excite her.
