About me

Welcome to my web presence. I am an Associate Professor in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas. Born, raised, and educated in Germany, I got my PhD in Applied Language and Speech Sciences with a focus on Communication Disorders (specifically in the area of literacy) from UL Lafayette (Louisiana). Since 2012, I have called Lubbock, Texas my home.


I am a scholar and researcher in the area literacy development and disorders, and  qualitative aspects of human interaction. On this website, I pursue some developing thoughts that are not quite ready for formal publishing yet. I also discuss research relevant to the practice of speech-language pathology, and to patient-provider interaction across disciplines.
