Jamila Minga, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is an Assistant Professor and speech-language pathologist with primary research interests are adult neurogenic communication disorders following stroke and stroke rehabilitation outcomes. Specifically, she is interested in investigating the impact of right hemisphere brain damage (RHD) on pragmatic communication performance and the development of population sensitive measures for determination of rehabilitation needs. It is her long-term research goal to contribute to the increased recognition and distinction of the functional impact of stroke based on hemisphere of lesion by developing a comprehensive expertise in language production deficits and representative diagnostic markers 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.
