Biography and Education

Clinical Biography

Corinne Jones, PhD, CCC-SLP, is a licensed speech-language pathologist in the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences. She is also a part of the Pharyngeal High-Resolution Manometry care team. She specializes in the evaluation and treatment of swallowing disorders (dysphagia), particularly those associated with neurologic disease. Additionally, Dr. Jones is an assistant professor in both the Dell Medical School Department of Neurology and the Moody College of Communication Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. Jones earned both her dual doctorate in neuroscience and communication sciences and disorders and her master’s in speech-language pathology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she investigated where she investigated changes to swallowing function in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. She also earned her bachelor’s in linguistics from Boston University. She completed a clinical fellowship in the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, at the Voice and Swallowing Clinic at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics. She is also a registered modified barium swallow impairment profile clinician and certified in McNeill dysphagia therapy.

Dr. Jones is an internationally recognized expert in the use of pharyngeal high-resolution manometry, a technique used to measure pressures generated by the pharyngeal muscles in the throat during swallowing. She runs the Swallowing Modulation Lab where the goals of her research are to improve understanding of motor control of swallowing and how that control changes in neurological development and disorders, expand insight into swallowing physiology through the use of objective assessment techniques, and explore novel therapeutic methods to slow the progression and minimize the negative consequences of dysphagia in neurodegenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. She is also a member of the Paydarfar Lab, which seeks to develop novel biosensors, signal-processing algorithms, and user interfaces that will enable clinicians and researchers to track and predict the health of individual patients as well as entire populations. She is active in the Parkinson’s community, serving on the Capital Area Parkinson’s Society (CAPS) Board of Directors and as a trainer for the Parkinson’s Foundation Team Training program.
