Christine Weber-Fox, Ph.D.
B.S., 1981 Portland State University
M.S. 1985 Purdue University
Ph.D., 1989 Purdue University
Christine Weber-Fox joined the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University in the Fall of 1999. After receiving her Ph.D., she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Salk Institute in the area of cognitive neuroscience. Her areas of interest include how the brain is organized for language processing. She utilizes event-related brain potential (ERP) in addition to behavioral measures. Specifically, her work focuses on how neural subsystems may differ in speakers with different language experience and communication skills, such as bilinguals, and individuals who stutter or are language impaired.
Professor Weber-Fox holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She gained her clinical experience working in both hospital (outpatient, inpatient, and acute care) and school settings.
