Dr. Alejandro Brice is a bilinguist who’s fascinated by the brain. His research focuses on the brain’s ability to process multiple languages, particularly in individuals who’ve suffered traumatic brain injuries. His research has contributed to the scientific understanding that bilingual brains process information differently than monolingual ones, and that brain function is susceptible to even minor traumatic injury.

Brice teaches graduate and undergraduate courses at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus, including classes on speech pathology and English as a second language. He also trains teachers to work better with students from second language backgrounds. Along with USF colleagues, Brice is studying the communication ability of people who’ve suffered from strokes. In 2008, he was recognized by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for his contributions to multicultural affairs. In 2011, he was selected by ASHA as a lifetime fellow.
