Dr. Eric S. Jackson is a clinician-scientist and director of the stuttering and vvariability (savvy) lab at NYU. His research examines the variability of stuttering—the inconsistency with which stuttering events manifest themselves—and the factors that drive variability including social interaction and anticipation. Dr. Jackson’s team uses a multi-leveled and multidisciplinary approach, including behavioral assessment, brain imaging, motion tracking, and computational modeling, and collaborates with researchers across the cognitive sciences from the social and theoretical neurosciences to development and speech production. In addition to his research, Dr. Jackson is a practicing speech-language pathologist with expertise in stuttering intervention. His experience as a person who stutters informs his research, practice, and teaching.
Before joining NYU, Eric was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Iowa, a position supported by the National Science Foundation. Since 2009, he has worked as a Speech-Language Pathologist and Adjunct Professor at several institutions in the US and internationally. Eric is also currently a Visiting Associate Professor in the Brain Function Laboratory at the Yale School of Medicine and Affiliated Scientist at Haskins Laboratories.
Jake Enslin | M.S. Candidate
Jake is a first year Masters student in the department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at NYU. He earned his B.A. in Elementary Education from Washington State University in 2012. He only began participating in stuttering research at the start of his graduate studies with NYU, but is tremendously interested in continuing the work and bringing this ongoing experience into his future practice as a clinician.
Beth Strumpf | M.S. Candidate
Beth is a second year Masters Student at NYU department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from The College of New Jersey in 2017. She grew interested in research throughout her undergraduate career, and is excited to carry that interest through her graduate career and into practice as a clinician.
Yaehee Sung | M.S. Candidate
Yaehee is a second year Masters student in the department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at NYU. She earned her B.A. in CSD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2017. She began participating in stuttering research during her undergraduate career and hopes to continue to be involved within the dynamic field of stuttering.
Haley Warner | M.S. Candidate
Haley is a masters candidate in the department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders at NYU. She received her B.A. from Emory University in 2014 with majors in Psychology and Educational Studies. Between graduating from Emory University and starting at NYU Haley was a teacher at a special education preschool in Harlem, NY. Haley hopes to continue participating in research throughout her studies to later inform her practice in working with people who stutter.
