School of Communication
Molly Losh’s research focuses on autism and related neurodevelopmental conditions, with a specific focus on language, communication, and associated abilities, and how such features may span diagnostic boundaries. Work from her lab has helped to identify key cognitive mechanisms that may underlie the social-communicative impairments in autism, in order to bridge gaps between observable clinical behaviors and underlying biology, necessary for understanding the causes of autism and related conditions.
Bienen School of Music
Danuta Mirka holds the Harry N. and Ruth F. Wyatt Chair in Music Theory at Bienen School of Music.

She is particularly interested in integrating aspects of historical music theory with those of contemporary research in music theory and cognition. Her research in those areas was supported by grants and fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and the Leverhulme Trust. Her books and articles won awards from the American Musicological Society and Society for Music Theory. Before joining Northwestern in 2019, Mirka taught at the University of Southampton, UK.
