Dr. Eric S. Jackson is an Assistant Professor in the Communicative Sciences and Disorders (CSD) department at NYU. He received his M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York (CUNY) and his Ph.D. in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences from the Graduate Center of CUNY.

Eric is a clinician-scientist and director of the Stuttering and Vvariability (savvy) Laboratory 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. Eric’s goal is to use basic science approaches and knowledge of the human experience to, ultimately, inform support mechanisms and intervention approaches to improve the lives of children and adults who stutter. In addition to his research, Eric is a practicing speech-language pathologist (SLP) 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 SLP 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.
