Dr. Sterling Sheffield joins the SLHS Au.D. faculty
Dr. Sheffield joined our faculty as an Assistant Professor in July. He received a clinical Doctorate of Audiology degree from the University of Iowa and completed an externship at the Mayo Clinic Rochester. He received his PhD in Audiology from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Sheffield then worked as a postdoctoral research audiologist at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland College Park before joining us at the University of Florida. His research focuses on improving clinical and research tools to measure the benefits of cochlear implants and hearing aids as well as the effects of hearing loss. Current studies focus on complex measures of speech perception. Outside of work, Dr. Sheffield enjoys commuting to campus by bicycle, reading and listening to books (sucker for fiction), playing and watching all things sports (obsessed with ESPN), and relaxing and playing with his family (wife, daughter, and twin boys).
