My research interest is to understand the cause-effect relationship between voice physiology and the produced voice. Current research projects include topics on laryngeal fluid-structure interaction, vocal fold biomechanics, and neuromuscular control of voice production and quality, toward clinical and voice technology applications.

Research in our group is funded by grants from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
