I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. My research investigates the control of prosody for speech intelligibility and naturalness. The focus of my current project is pitch control for phrasal prominence in speech in ataxia. The overall goal in my research is to improve our understanding of motor speech control processes for prosody in order to inform effective speech therapy treatments for improved speech naturalness and intelligibility.
