Dr. Lundine completed both her B.A. in Speech and Hearing Science and M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from The Ohio State University. She then worked as a speech-language pathologist on the rehabilitation unit and in acute care at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus for more than a decade before returning to OSU for her doctoral work. She graduated with her Ph.D. in Speech & Hearing Science in 2016. Dr. Lundine then continued her work at Nationwide Children’s Hospital as the Director of Research for the Department of Speech Pathology and the Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. She joined the faculty at OSU in the fall of 2017, and she remains an affiliated research scientist at Nationwide Children’s. Dr. Lundine teaches courses in Cognitive-Communication Disorders, Pediatric Medical Speech-Language Pathology, and Language Acquisition. Her clinical, teaching, and research interests include impairments associated with complex pediatric medical diagnoses, especially cognitive-communication disorders associated with acquired brain injury (ABI). Specifically, her research focuses on improving gaps in access to and utilization of services designed to support children with ABI and identifying specific approaches that would improve assessment and treatment practices following pediatric ABI.

Kelly DiLullo

Kelly DiLullo is a first-year student in Ohio State University’s MA-SLP program. Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree with double majors in Spanish, including a focus in Hispanic Linguistics, and Speech and Hearing Science from The Ohio State University in May 2018. While her undergraduate research endeavors included Hispanic linguistics, pulmonology, and autism spectrum disorder, Kelly plans to pursue her interests in bilingual studies and medical SLP in her graduate career. She is still undecided about where her true passions lie within the field, but her primary areas of interest are articulation / motor speech disorders, as well as patients that sustain acquired brain injuries, all within a medical SLP context. Through involvement in the CABI Lab, Kelly hopes to learn more about speech-language pathology in the context of pediatric-medical SLP, and to do research with patients that sustain acquired brain injuries. In the future, Kelly hopes to practice as a clinician and utilize her Spanish skills in a medical setting with bilingual or Spanish-speaking patients.
