Nicole Etter

Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders



  1. Dr. Etter completed her PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Kentucky in 2014. Her primary research interests include auditory and orofacial somatosensation and their relationship with low-level force assessments for skilled oral behaviors (speech) in healthy young, aging, and clinical populations.


Lab Affilitation: The Orofacial Physiology and Perceptual Analysis Lab (OPPAL)
