Dr. Swathi Kiran is an Associate Dean for Research, a James and Cecelia Tse Ying Professor in Neurorehabilitation, the Director of the Aphasia Research Laboratory, and the Research Director of Aphasia Resource Center at Boston University. She is also the Co-Founder/Chief Scientific Advisor of ConstantTherapy/The Learning Corp. Her research incorporates three distinct lines of work including: 1) treatment efficacy experiments involving individuals with aphasia, 2) experiments examining mono- and bilingual language processing, and 3) functional neuroimaging in patients with aphasia. The ultimate goal of her research is aimed at designing a comprehensive model of brain processing mechanisms underlying neuroplasticity consequent to treatment-induced language recovery in patients with aphasia.
