Led by Dr. Jun Wang, assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering and Communication Sciences and Disorders, the UT Dallas Speech Disorders & Technology Lab (SDTL) is dedicated to develop assistive speech technology and to conduct basic speech science and disorders research. This research also includes speech motor control for silent speech or dysarthria speech, motor speech disorders (e.g., due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and neural patterns in speech. Machine learning is heavily used in all projects. The labs are located at the UT Dallas main campus in Richardson and the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
