Ileana Ratiu, M.S., CCC-SLP, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Midwestern University

Ileana Ratiu completed her PhD training in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science (SHS) in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University.  Ileana learned English at the age of six when she emigrated to the U.S.  The early challenges she faced as a bilingual speaker motivated her to focus her research interests on cognition in the bilingual population. Ileana has conducted many experiments examining working memory, episodic memory, executive function, and attentional control in bilingual speakers and monolingual speakers.  In addition to using traditional performance measures, she is currently collaborating with Dr. Mike Hout (NMSU) and Dr. Steve Goldinger on studies utilizing eye-tracking measurements. Ileana Ratiu is currently an Assistant Professor of Speech Pathology at Midwestern University.
