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 Dynamics Lab (SaDL) at NYU. His research examines the variability of stuttering—the inconsistency with which stuttering events manifest themselves—and the factors that drive variability including anticipation and social interaction. To answer his research questions, Eric uses a multi-leveled approach including behavioral assessment, brain imaging, motion tracking, phenomenological methods, and computational modeling. In addition to his research, Eric is a practicing clinician with expertise in stuttering intervention. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in stuttering, speech science, and research methods. Eric’s 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 currently a Visiting Associate in the Brain Function Laboratory at the Yale School of Medicine and Affiliated Scientist at Haskins Laboratories.
