PhD Students

The Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience (IPN) at Georgetown University trains doctoral candidates to teach and conduct independent research in Neuroscience. 

 

Kelly Michaelis

PhD Candidate
Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience

Kelly is a Ph.D. student in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience at Georgetown University. Prior to starting at Georgetown, Kelly studied temporal processing and motor excitability as a research assistant for the Perception and Action Neuroscience Group at George Mason University. Kelly joined CRL as a full time member in 2015. She is conducting her thesis research using EEG and TMS-EEG to study the neural mechanisms of speech perception. In her free time, Kelly loves attending concerts and hiking up and down mountains.

Vivian Dickens

MD/PhD Candidate
Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience

Vivian Dickens is an MD/PhD student at Georgetown University School of Medicine and holds a BA in Linguistics from the University of Georgia. Before matriculating to Georgetown, Vivian studied the neuropsychology of normal and pathological aging through traditional behavioral tools and structural neuroimaging. Vivian began working with Dr. Turkeltaub in 2016 and joined the lab as a graduate student the fall of 2017. He is interested in characterizing post-stroke plasticity of the language network, specifically as it relates to acquired reading disorders.


Kelly Martin

PhD Candidate
Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience

Kelly began the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience in July 2017, and joined CRL in the summer of 2018. Her previous research endeavors involved using multimodal neuroimaging methods to study visual and auditory attention (David Somers, BU), language recovery in aphasia (Swathi Kiran, BU), and adolescent development (John VanMeter, Georgetown). As part of the CRL, she is using structural and functional MRI to investigate plasticity after stroke. Outside of lab, Kelly loves to draw, play soccer, and watch baseball.
