Research Objectives

  1. To determine how phonetic and phonemic factors encode linguistic, sociolinguistic, and physiological properties.
  2. To explain the effects of neurodegenerative conditions, such as Primary Progressive Aphasia, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s disease, on speech and language.
  3. To develop a multi-technique methodology that combines state-of-the-art neural networks, signal processing, and computational linguistics to model speech production and perception in neurodegenerative conditions.
