Doug Shiller’s research focuses on speech motor control, combining a wide range of empirical methods to determine the control strategies underlying speech production. More recently, his work has focused on speech motor learning in children, adapting methods for altering auditory feedback to the study of pediatric speech disorders (including stuttering and phonological disorder). His clinical training in speech-language pathology combined with his research background in neural mechanisms of speech production has allowed him to carry out a research program that bridges fundamental and clinical issues in speech development and speech production.
