Biosketch

I received my B.S. in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology from Ali Yavar Jung National Institute for the Hearing Handicapped (AYJNIHH-ERC) under University of Calcutta, India in 2007. I worked as an Audiologist and Speech-Language Pathologist in India during 2007-2008. I then came to Bowling Green State University, Ohio in 2008 for graduate studies. I received my Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2013.
After completing my doctoral program, I had the opportunity to join the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Oklahoma State University (Tulsa) as a Visiting Assistant Professor during Fall 2013. I started my current academic position of Assistant Professor in Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Oklahoma State University (Stillwater) in Fall 2014.

Research

I am interested in examining the relationships between speech performance, motor performance and executive functioning of individuals with motor speech disorders. I have been specifically working with individuals with Parkinson disease. My doctoral dissertation work examined perception of speech and motor performance of individuals by Parkinson disease in terms of self-ratings by individuals with PD and proxy ratings by communication partners. In addition, my dissertation project also examined self and proxy perception of quality of life of individuals with PD.
My present research work is focused on identifying the perceptual aspects used by listeners to perceive normal and disordered speech. My other research interests include executive functioning in normal and neurogenic populations, relationship between neurological disorders and quality of life, and bilingual and multilingual issues experienced by Speech-Language Pathologists.

Outreach in Stillwater Community

Outreach in Stillwater Community

I am involved as a facilitator for the Stillwater Parkinson Disease Support Group under the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma. We meet once a month (first Tuesdays of each month) at Stillwater Medical Center to discuss about different aspects of Parkinson disease. We also have guest speakers from the local community and surrounding areas who share their knowledge and expertise related to Parkinson disease during our monthly meetings.

Please contact me if you would like to know more about the group or would like to attend one of our meetings as a guest speaker, volunteer or as a member. You can contact me at sabiha.parveen@okstate.edu and/or 405-744-5116 for further details.
