Current WOWS Scholars

Jennifer E. Arnold

Department of Psychology and Neuroscience

Dr. Arnold studies the cognitive mechanisms involved in using language. She is especially interested in how people use language appropriately in context, which involves integrating information from the linguistic signal itself with inferences about the discourse, context, and their interloctutor’s mental state. Her current projects examine the role of experience and statistical learning in the use of discourse cues to pronoun comprehension.

Abbie Smith-Ryan, PhD

Department of Exercise and Sport Science & Department of Nutrition

Dr. Smith-Ryan’s research interests center around exercise and nutrition interventions to modify various aspects of body composition, cardiovascular health, and metabolic function. She is an active researcher in the field of metabolism, sport nutrition and exercise performance, in both healthy and clinical populations, leading projects funded by the National Institutes of Health and International and National industry sponsored clinical trials.
