Research description:

My research focuses on speech perception and the effects of neurological diseases on speech production. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the articulatory kinematics in dysarthria. My long-term goal is to contribute to motor speech disorders by gaining insights into the underlying mechanisms of dysarthria that can translate into clinical settings.
