The Rehabilitation Science Doctoral Program would like to welcome our newest Graduate Faculty members, Drs. Stefani Bodison, Charles Ellis, Jr. and Hongwu Wang!
Stefani Bodison, OTD, OTR/L
Dr. Bodison is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy. She is an internationally renowned expert in sensory integration theory, assessment, and intervention. Her research program uses multimodal neuroimaging methods to investigate the neural correlates of sensory processing as a foundation for the development of sensorimotor and social-emotional skills in neurotypically developing children and those with neurodevelopmental disorders. We are also excited to have Dr. Bodison as a member of the Rehabilitation Science Steering Committee.
Charles Ellis, Jr., PhD, CCC-SLP
Dr. Ellis is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. He is internationally recognized for his clinical outcomes research in the areas of adult neurogenic communication disorders and health disparities. He is a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and has been recognized by ASHA for his significant contributions in multicultural affairs. We are also excited to have Dr. Ellis as a member of the Rehabilitation Science Steering Committee.
Hongwu Wang, PhD
Dr. Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy. As a biomedical engineer and rehabilitation scientist, he develops and applies well-thought-out technology approaches to address issues in occupational performance, to improve mobility, participation, well-being and quality of life in people with disabilities and older adults. His research focuses on user participatory design, wearable and mHealth, rehabilitation robotics, machine learning, assistive technology, and sensor-based outcome measures.
