Megan Cuellar is excited to join the faculty in the Communicative Disorders and Sciences department at SJSU in the fall of 2020 as an Assistant Professor. Megan is currently an Associate Professor in the Speech-Language Pathology Program at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL where she serves as an instructor in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology for the osteopathic medicine students, dental students, and physician assistant students. She also researches and teaches coursework in neurological communication disorders with a specific interest in swallowing disorders and motor speech disorders. Megan’s research aims to use whole EEG neuroimaging techniques to explore the effects of stimulating mirror neurons in order to enhance swallowing and motor speech communication abilities in clinical populations. She also uses EEG to explore the functional neurophysiology of verb naming abilities in individuals with Aphasia.
