Fields of Interest: 

Ariane is a speech language pathologist from Australia. She performs diagnostic speech and language assessments for research participants with primary progressive aphasia (PPA), treats patients with PPA via our PPA Speech Therapy trial and researches the diagnosis and treatment of motor speech disorders in PPA. 

She graduated from the University of Sydney, Australia with a masters degree in speech language pathology. In her undergraduate work, she researched multi-modal discourse analysis, creating a system network for the illustration of facial affect in children’s literature and completing a research project on embodied semiosis in political photography.
