Dr. Roberta M DiDonato completed a PhD in Experimental Cognitive Psychology under the mentorship of Dr. Aimée M. Surprenant at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The focus of this research has been on how auditory-perception and processing may interact with and influence the cognitive processes in the older adult. Her clinical training and experiences in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology inform and direct my research interest towards understanding potential causal mechanisms and identifying intervention for and/or prevention of disordered cognition and communication. Currently, she is an Adjunct Professor in the Psychology department in the Cognitive Aging and Memory Experimental Lab at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Also she is a registered and certified Speech-Language Pathologist employed by Eastern Healthcare in St John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. These combined researcher-clinician roles have provided me with the opportunity to disseminate the findings from my current research as a proponent for knowledge translation to varied professional researchers and clinicians whose interest is in cognitive aging. She has recently received funding from Newfoundland and Labrador’s Healthy Aging Research program to investigate how age-related visual perception and processing may influence learning and memory performance in the older adult.
