I earned my PhD degree in computer science with a
specialty on speech production from the University of
Nebraska - Lincoln in December 2011, co-advised by Dr. Jordan
R. Green (communication disorders) and Dr.
Samal (computer science). I was then a postdoctoral
research associate in the Neurogenetic Communication
Disorders Consortium, a joint program between the
University of Nebraska Medical Center and the University
of Nebraska - Lincoln from January to August 2012 before I
joined UTD Callier Center.
