"Imagine a word where human beings do not know language and speech! Let's try to describe it! Yes, you wouldn't be able even read my notes! The question is how this whole complex system of communication functions and how we can maintain it healthy! This is where my journey starts!..."     

My research area of interests is mainly focused on the cognitive and neural mechanism underlying speech perception and production. My goal is to discover how listeners perceive and translate acoustic information carried by speech to linguistic concepts. I aim to use various behavioral, signal processing, and neural imaging techniques to investigate this complex system. Elaborate understanding of this multifaceted system of speech and language production/comprehension will allow us to devise more effective preventative and treatment tools for speech and language disorders. Working on a variety of research projects related to speech and language have directed me to the point that I have found it more amazing. My current research is mainly about the role of prosodic cues on speech perception.
