A summer research experience with Dr. Kimberly Meigh at the Speech Motor Control Lab helped Jake find his niche. He plans to pursue a master’s degree and possibly a PhD, with the goal of working in either academia or a research laboratory.
We Make An Impact
CEHS faculty are engaged in transformative research that impacts the local community, the state of West Virginia and the nation.
Supported by a grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, Dr. Matthew Campbell and WVU alumna Joanna Burt-Kinderman are working to expand a mathematics education program throughout five West Virginia counties.More About Dr. Campbell
Breaking the Code
Only 1.8 percent of West Virginia public school students are identified as “gifted,” well below the national average of 6 percent, according to the National Association for Gifted Children. But Dr. Carla Brigandi believes that West Virginia’s number is not representative of the talent in our local communities.More About Dr. Brigandi
