Research Directions

  • To develop a customizable accent reduction regime based on theories in linguistics, speech science, speech pathology, and advanced computer technology
  • To study the acoustic and aerodynamic characteristics in individuals with articulation inaccuracy as in dysarthrics and speaking with an accent
  • To apply speech instrumentation and computer technology to scientific ESL learning
  • To better understand and develop more effective rehabilitation regimes for alaryngeal speech and voice/speech disorders
  • To research and develop objective methods in speaker comparison used in voice forensics
