I joined CONCH lab in September 2015 and I am currently co-supervised by Dr. David Purcell at the National Centre for Audiology at Western University. When we speak, we use different types of sensory information to control the precision of articulation and its resultant acoustic characteristics. That is, we hear the sound that we produce and sense the feelings of the articulators in the mouth. Although cortical processes of auditory and somatosensory information are well investigated, how these senses are integrated to control speech production is not well understood. I am investigating this integration process using neurophysiological, functional imaging and behavioral techniques.
