Teenu Sanjeevan, PhD

Teenu is a post-doctoral fellow working with Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou. She completed her PhD in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Toronto where she examined the motor learning abilities of children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) to understand the parallels between language and motor learning.

Dr. Sanjeevan’s post-doctoral research focuses on the common origins hypothesis, which suggests that the underlying cause of neurodevelopmental disorders such as SLI and autism are related. Teenu’s current work explores the brain-behavior relations in language and motor learning in SLI and autism.
