Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

We are primarily interested in laryngeal physiology and function, with a particular interest in the application of advanced imaging techniques in studying vocal fold physiology. Currently, we are developing a method of high speed digital image analysis of normal and abnormal vocal fold vibration in a variety of states, including neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and spasmodic dysphonia. In addition, we are interested in the application of high resolution MRI imaging of the human larynx in detecting invasive laryngeal cancer at an earlier stage than can be currently detected. Finally, we are interested in the effects that hormones and exogenous factors such as anabolic steroids may exert on the voice and the subsequent changes to the vocal cords that these substances may incur.
