"Imagine a word where human beings do not know any languages and how to speech! Let's try to describe it! Yes, you wouldn't be able even read my notes! How does this whole complex system of communication develop and function and how can we keep it healthy and effective? This is where my journey starts!..."     

My research area of interests are mainly focused on the acoustic, cognitive and neural mechanism underlying speech perception and production. My goal is to unravel the mechanism underlying the robust sensation and perception of speech and language which functions effectively, regardless of various sources of variability. I aim to pursue this goal by using various behavioral, signal processing, and neural imaging techniques. Elaborate understanding of this multifaceted system of speech and language production/comprehension will allow us to devise more effective preventative and treatment methods and tools for speech and language disorders. I am currently working on three projects: (1) The role of prosodic cues on speech perception, (2) The effect of infant directed speech on language outcome, and (3) The underlying mechanism in separation of pathologic voices from normal ones.
