About the Lab
Led by Dr. Jun Wang, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Moody College of Communication and in the Department of Neurology, Dell Medical School, the Speech Disorders & Technology Lab (SDTL) is dedicated to develop assistive speech technologies including silent speech interfaces and to conduct basic speech science and disorders research on neurogenic motor speech disorders and neural processing for speech communication. Advanced computational techniques such as machine learning are heavily used. The lab is located at CMB1 in the Moody College and HDB5 in the Dell Medical Shool.
