Teaching and Research

Since Dr. Park joined Baylor CSD in 2008, he has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of anatomy and physiology, aphasiology, neurodegenerative cognitive linguistic deficits, neurology and instrumentations, language development, and multicultural issues in speech-language pathology.

Dr. Park is a clinically-trained scientist and directs the Baylor Adult Neurogenic Disorders (BANDA) lab. Dr. Park’s primary research specializes in understanding the neuropsychological and psycholinguistic characteristic of communication difficulties experienced by adults with normal aging process or a range of neurodegenerative conditions such as stroke-induced aphasia, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, traumatic brain injury, and normal aging process.

Dr. Park’s current research project with Parkinson’s patients is particularly concerned with the longitudinal impact of Parkinson’s disease on cognitive and linguistic declines and investigating associated cerebral hemodynamic correlates as measured by the functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) technology.  Another emerging line of research focuses on developing or utilizing innovative clinical methodologies such as virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) systems, interactive metronome (IM) approaches, and various app-based interventive approaches to see if they are suitable for increasing overall linguistic and cognitive profiles in adult neurogenic populations.

Dr. Park has been involved in a Parkinson research project as a Visiting Researcher at the Division of Neuropsychology of the Baylor Scott and White Health in Temple, TX from spring 2019 to spring 2021.  Dr. Park has a big passion for conducting research with his students. He enjoys working with and mentoring student graduate and undergraduate research assistants in his BANDA lab. His favorite bible verse is Romans 8:28 that teaches us about how God orchestrates the world and everything in the lives of His children in spite of our limits and weakness.
