Professor and Department Head, Department of Language and Literacy Education
My research focused initially on the speech disorder of stuttering, including especially questions about defining, measuring, and treating it in children and adults. That led me to questions about what it means to select a treatment "goal" or to test an "intervention" of any sort, within speech-language pathology and across the health-related disciplines. Most recently, my efforts have been in academic leadership, management, and administration for a busy, multidisciplinary department full of wonderful, thoughtful, hard-working people.
