Gratitude for our Visiting PhD Students from University of Houston

We have been fortunate to host two visiting PhD students from the University of Houston this past summer: Juliana Ronderos, rising 5th year student, dedicated her summer to brain-behavior analyses to investigate relationships between white matter brain structure and language/reading abilities among bilingual children using a large-scale NIH open source dataset. Michelle Hernandez, rising 2nd year student, spent her summer contributing to retrospective analysis of speech prosody among children with autism spectrum disorder in collaboration with Dr. Helen Tager-Flusberg, Dr. John Gabrieli, and Dr. Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel.

We are filled with gratitude for the investment of their time and efforts, and we missing the vibrant energy and enthusiasm these two brought to our lab environment! Wishing them both the best of luck with their return to Houston, and looking forward to their next visit to Boston as we continue to collaborate in the meantime.
