In my current postdoctoral position in the Speech Neural Systems Lab at the University of Pittsburgh with Asst. Prof. Jason Bohland, I’m conducting acoustic analyses for an NSF grant on speech produced under delayed auditory feedback, and we are also developing further experiments employing electromagnetic articulography (EMA), functional MRI, electro-encephalography (EEG), and transcranial alternating current stimulation.
In my previous postdoc at Boston University with Prof. Frank Guenther, I mostly worked on rebuilding/updating the Guenther Lab‘s diffusion MRI analysis pipeline in the Python language and also contributed to a paper generating functional regions-of-interest (ROIs) for MRI studies of speech production.
