Gayatri Ram, PhD, CCC-SLP

Clinical Assistant Professor
Berglund Hall 257

I am delighted to join the College of Education as an assistant professor of clinical education in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Most recently, I worked as a speech-language pathologist with elementary school-age children in a public school system in Oregon.  Prior to relocating to Oregon, I earned my Master’s and Doctoral degree in speech and language sciences at Ohio University.

Clinically, I am passionate about developing protocols for assessing linguistic and literacy skills in children with and without language impairments.  Much of my research work has focused on understanding and explaining lexical acquisition skills in children as well as investigating the relation between school-age children’s morphological knowledge and their literacy skills. I enjoy teaching and am very excited about the opportunity to mentor students to become future professionals at Pacific.

Outside of work, I enjoy cooking vegetarian cuisine, hiking, and traveling to different places within United States and internationally.


A summer literacy camp put on by faculty and students in the College of Education's School of Communication Sciences & Disorders and School of Learning & Teaching provided rich — and fun — literacy activities for local children.
