Graduate Student Matias Zanartu awarded Best Student Paper in Speech Communication at Acoustical Society of America
Matías Zañartu, a Ph.D candidate in the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering, received the Best Student Paper Award in Speech Communication at the Acoustical Society of America Meeting in Portland for the poster entitled "An impedance-based inverse filtering scheme with glottal coupling" presented in the special session on source-filter interactions in biological sound production. The paper was co-authored by Julio Ho from BME at Purdue, Daryush Mehta from MIT-Harvard, Robert Hillman from MGH/MIT-Harvard, and Professor George Wodicka of ECE. The project is part of the collaboration between Professor Wodicka and Professor Robert Hillman, Research Director of the Center for Laryngeal Surgery & Voice Rehabilitation at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA.
