Erin Ingvalson joined the Speech and Hearing Sciences department in 2020. Before that, she was an Associate Professor in the School of Communication Science and Disorders at Florida State University. Her PhD is in cognitive psychology and she did her postdoctoral training in speech and hearing at Northwestern University.

Dr. Ingvalson's research interests are in speech perception. Her lab seeks to understand how listeners find sucess when listening is challening, then build on that information to help all listeners be successful. Recent projects include looking at how older and younger adults perceive foreign-accented and dysarthric speech, computerized training to improve language and literacy outcomes for children with hearing loss, and a longitudinal study of literacy development in preschoolers with hearing loss.
