Robin M. Jones, Ph.D, CCC-SLP, is an Assistant Professor, Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences. He received his PhD in 2012 from Vanderbilt University with a major in Fluency Disorders and a minor in Developmental Psychology / Language. Before returning to Vanderbilt in 2013, Dr. Jones was a Social and Behavioral Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science at The Ohio State University. Jones’s major academic, clinical and research interests involve the study of emotional and speech-language contributions to childhood stuttering. Presently he is a co-investigator with Dr. Tedra A. Walden (PI), Department of Psychology, on a multidisciplinary, NIH-funded program of study of emotional and linguistic contributions to childhood stuttering. Using a multi-method, longitudinal approach, the goal of this research is to better understand how emotional and speech-language processes differ between children who do and do not stutter and whether such differences indicate which children are likely to recover from versus persist with stuttering.
When not involved with professional matters, Robin may be found spending personal time with his wife (Kristin) and son (Arlo) as well as pursuing interests in cooking, playing guitar, hiking and surfing.
