Director of the Janette Ogg Voice Research Center and Associate Professor of Voice and Voice Pedagogy David Meyer, D.M., delivered a guest lecture, “Seeing voice: the pedagogical and musical applications of hybrid CT-MRI vocal tract modeling,” at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Music (U.K.) as part of the Centre for Music and Science Seminar Series on Nov. 22.
The trip was made possible by an International Exchanges Grant from the Royal Society in London, a competitive grant funded by the British royal family.
Dr. Meyer leads a multi-site research team that is developing several of the world’s most accurate 3D representations of the vocal tract airspace. This team includes Dr. David Howard of Royal Holloway College of London, Biomedical Engineering and School of Medicine faculty from the University of Iowa, and researchers from the University of Arizona College of Science and the Utah Center for Vocology.
The first paper produced by this team was published in the Journal of Voice on Oct. 27, 2022.
