About the UCLA Speech Processing and Auditory Perception Laboratory

Established 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 speech-processing applications.

These 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.

The projects foster cross-disciplinary activities in the Engineering, Computer Science, Graduate School of Education and Information Science, Radiology, Linguistics, Head and Neck Surgery, and Neurosurgery Departments at UCLA and with researchers at the House Ear Institute.
