Bryan is a PhD candidate in the Communication Sciences and Disorders department. He comes to the University of Iowa after receiving a BS and MA in speech-language pathology from Western Michigan University and practicing as a speech-language pathologist in Seattle, Washington. Both his research and clinical interests surround the problem of developmental stuttering. Clinically, he is interested in improving the quality of services provided to typically underserved populations (preschool children just beginning to stutter and adolescents who stutter). His developing research interests involve clearly describing the integration of motor commands and language processing during speech production.
