Short Description: The proposed research focuses on creating robust, widely-deployable and cost-effective technology solutions for enabling and enhancing cross-lingual spoken interaction between people who do not share a common language. Our target application focuses on communication between healthcare personnel who speak English only and patients with limited-English proficiency.

Short Description: Human vocal behavior--conveying both verbal and non verbal information--signifies a key vehicle for such computational modeling, and offers a promising venue for evidence driven behavioral assessment and diagnostics. Our team brings extensive experience in voice, speech, spoken language and associated nonverbal behavior analysis.

Short Description: Speech processing in low signal-to-noise (SNR) condition is challenging depending on data recording and transmission conditions. As the spectral characteristics change from one type of sound to another, the way their acoustic properties change in low SNR depends on the type of sound and the spectral characteristics of the noise.
