Research Interests

Jamila Minga, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is an assistant professor in the Communication Disorders Program and a Scholar of the Building Interdisciplinary Careers in Women's Health Research (BIRCWH). Her primary research interest is adult neurogenic communication disorders. Specifically, she is interested in investigating the impact of right hemisphere brain damage (RHD) on pragmatic communication performance. It is her long-term research goal to develop a comprehensive expertise in conversational discourse deficits as a precursor for engineering assessments and treatment protocols to enhance functional integration of persons with brain damage into their respective communities. This goal stems from her clinical experience providing adult neurogenic rehabilitation services in acute, subacute, and skilled rehabilitation settings. Other research interests include cultural language analysis, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), and health disparities.
