Sherri Jones

Department Chair, Director, Professor

Ph.D., Audiology/Hearing Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 1994

Sherri Jones joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2012 as the chair of the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders and director of the Barkley Memorial Center. 

Her current research interests include the influence of genetic and/or environmental factors that may affect auditory and vestibular development and aging. Sherri is also interested in the role(s) the vestibular system may play in physiological homeostasis, and how vestibular deficits may influence other systems such as the autonomic, cardiovascular, and skeletal motor systems. Clinical research is examining the underlying mechanisms of dizziness and imbalance related to blast or blunt head trauma on vestibular and oculomotor function. Her lab is also developing vestibular evoked potentials for use as a clinical test of the vestibular system, with the goal to ultimately lead to better diagnosis and treatment of dizziness.

Sherri has taught a variety of courses in areas related to her research such as applied neurophysiology, hearing science, auditory physiology, assessment and management of vestibular disorders, and embryology and genetics of hearing impairment. Since joining Nebraska, she has taught genetic basis of communication and learning, seminar in audiology and auditory electrophysiological assessment.

Prior to arriving at Nebraska, Sherri held faculty positions at East Carolina University and the University of Missouri. She earned all three of her degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
