In her current role, Dr. Tamaki oversees the curriculum, assessment, strategic planning, other administrative tasks for the Au.D. program; teaches Au.D. and Ph.D. courses in the areas of diagnostic audiology, vestibular studies, and professional issues; mentors student research in Au.D. and Ph.D. programs; and directs the Vestibular and Balance Lab, an interdisciplinary research program exploring the interactions of vestibular functions, sign language use, and spatial functions. 

Two other Gallaudet alumni are on the American Academy of Audiology Board of Directors: Sarah Sydlowski, PhD ’10, is president-elect, and Samantha Kleindienst Robler, G-’08, AuD ’09, & PhD ’14, is a board member. Congratulations to all three for their accomplishments and leadership!
