Victoria Tilton-Bolowsky is Doctoral Research Fellow in the Cognitive Neuroscience Group under the research mentorship of Dr. Sofia Vallila Rohter. She is a doctoral student in the Rehabilitation Sciences Ph.D. program at the MGH Institute of Health Professions, under the academic mentorship of Dr. Marjorie Nicholas. She also serves as a co-chair for the Students for Racial Justice in Healthcare (SRJH) student group at the IHP.

Prior to entering the doctoral program, Victoria worked as a Speech-Language Pathologist in acute care, acute rehabilitation, and outpatient settings for the University of Maryland Shore Regional Medical Center at Easton from 2014-2017 and at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center from 2017-2018. She currently holds a per diem appointment at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Boston.

Research Interests

Victoria is interested in studying the mechanisms that support the recovery of communication, innovative techniques to facilitate language recovery in aphasia, and exploring the intersections between culture and communication. She is currently involved in research investigating the relationship between feedback processing and learning success under errorless and errorful learning paradigms.
