in 1992, our laboratory conducts research in a wide range of areas in
speech processing. Our research interests focus on developing
quantitative models of human speech perception and production
mechanisms and using these models to improve the performance of
quantitative models are essential for providing insights into our
cognitive abilities. Our research activities include: Modeling Speech
Perception in Noise with Applications to Speech Coding, Hearing Aids
and Automatic Speech Recognition; Novel Techniques for Modeling Speech
Production; Synthesis of Pathological Voices; Acoustic Echo
Cancellation; and Acoustically-driven Talking Face Animation.
