Meet Our Faculty
The youngest of seven kids in small town Nebraska, Sherri Jones arrived at ECU as a scientist and clinician trained in hearing science and audiology. Having completed her graduate work at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, Jones brought her intense research interests with her to Greenville: auditory and vestibular physiology, genetics of vestibular dysfunction, and auditory and vestibular aging. At ECU, she works on her basic research in her laboratory and sees patients at the ECU Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic. Through both her own research and seeing patients on a daily basis, Jones is enabled with the opportunity to collaborate with scientists from many different disciplines around the world. This opportunity also allows her to learn something new everyday. In the past three years Jones has had 6 different articles published ranging from the Journal of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology to the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
