research overview

  • Dr. Caccamise directs the Salsa lab, a research group dedicated to studying discourse processes. Currently she is the Principal Investigator for a grant with the Department of Education/IES to develop middle school curriculum that teaches students expert reading comprehension skills as they struggle to understand challenging content area course work such as science and history. This lab group also employs in their research natural language processing strategies and maintains the LSA website, used internationally in language research and university coursework. A second area of research for Dr. Caccamise concerns under-represented groups in STEM education and careers.
