He is the recipient of several federally funded research grants for investigating stuttering treatment and the neurology of stuttering.

Peter Fox and Janis Costello Ingham, he has developed a program of research on developmental stuttering using brain imaging techniques including PET, event-related fMRI, MEG and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Currently he is the PI for an NIH grant investigating the interaction between neural systems change and stuttering treatment.
