Fiona Höbler is in the 4th year of her doctoral studies at the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute, University of Toronto, where she studies under the supervision of Professor Luc De Nil, in the Speech Fluency Lab, Department of Speech-Language Pathology. Fiona completed her Bachelor of Arts at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and clinical Masters of Science at the University of Reading, England. Fiona practised as a Speech and Language Therapist in the southeast of England, whilst also developing a passion for research at the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading.
