Position Title: 
Assistant Professor

Peter Meulenbroek, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor in the Division of Communication Sciences and Disorders. His research examines the intersection between traumatic brain injury (TBI), communication ability, and stable employment.

People with TBI often have difficulties with returning to work. Work return problems are largely related to cognitive problems with attention, memory, and verbal reasoning abilities. When someone with TBI returns to work employment stability is better predicted by social communication ability. His work uses sociolinguistic description and theory about talk at work to develop new ways to assess and treat persons with TBI who hope to return to stable employment.
