Dr. Cokely joined the faculty in the fall of 2000 after nearly fifteen years of university teaching. He completed his undergraduate studies at Syracuse University and earned his master’s and doctorate degrees at Northwestern University. Dr. Cokely began his research career in the area of psychoacoustics, but for the past twelve years his energies have been directed toward the study of speech materials used to evaluate the hearing of Spanish-speaking listeners. His pioneering efforts in this area have resulted in publication, presentation, and several masters theses.
