Research Interests:

Dr. Kriegel investigates the effects of competing demands on speech for individuals with and without Parkinson disease. Her work uses challenging speaking contexts, including dual-tasking, mental manipulation, and cognitive-linguistic interference, to examine changes in speech production during complex tasks. Ongoing work aims to characterize speech acoustics, kinematics, and facial muscle activity patterns for individuals with and without Parkinson disease to inform clinical assessment and treatment decisions.
