About Dr Geraldine Bricker-Katz

I am interested in the stuttering experience and its impact on communication across life domains that are integral to subjective well-being. I am also interested in the speech science of stuttering and determining treatments that can be effective in the long term.

My expertise incorporates qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and I continue to develop proficiencies across both approaches to research. This enables capacity to design research to suit questions that can be answered empirically as well as questions that are experiential and subjective, both of which are needed in Communication Sciences and Disorders research.

Developed innovative research investigating stuttering in older people, a cohort about whom little was known. Currently investigating the work life experiences of people who stutter and bringing new knowledge into this under investigated area.
