MADI Lab

Welcome to the Miscommunication and Dialogue Interaction Lab (MADI Lab) webpage. We are currently located on Kent State University’s main campus in two locations: Speech & Hearing Clinic (CPA Room A129) and Research One Bldg (2nd floor, Room C). In the MADI Lab, undergraduate and graduate students work with Jenny Roche, PhD on topics related to how people (primarily neuro-typical adults) communicate and miscommunicate. In our lab, we study communication breakdown and how it is resolved. To do this we focus on things like perspective taking, tone of voice, behavioral alignment, and how social context shapes your communication style. The MADI Lab currently has four graduate students working independent research projects.
