Northwestern Scholars Page


Angela Roberts, Ph.D.I completed my Ph.D. in the Faculty of Health Sciences, School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Western Ontario in 2014 and completed a Post-doctoral fellowship in cognitive neurology at the Parkwood Institute in 2015. I completed a Masters degree in speech-language pathology in 1995 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and have practiced as a speech-language pathologist since that time in the area of adult neurogenic disorders.

In September 2015 I accepted a faculty appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. I am an Adjunct Research Faculty and a Principal Investigator with the International Consortium for Communication in Aging and Neurodegeneration, a multi-investigator research group at the University of Western Ontario.

My research interests include the underlying neurological processes and presentations of cognitive-communication and language disorders occurring in the context of neurodegenerative diseases and their subsequent impact on communication partners and care providers. I was previously awarded the Queen’s Jubilee Medal of Honour for contributions to improving the quality of life for individuals with Parkinson disease and their care partners, and I currently serve on the Research Policy Committee for Parkinson Society Canada.
