We are very excited to share the news that Daryush has received his first R01 grant from the NIH National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders! The project title is, "Ambulatory monitoring of a vocal efficiency index to improve the clinical management of voice disorders."
Vocal efficiency is a highly desirable objective measure for the clinical management of voice disorders, particularly if it can be obtained via ambulatory monitoring to track vocal health and vocal behavior in a patient’s natural environment. The proposed work pursues critical goals of...
Check out our hot-off-the-press work: Direct Measurement and Modeling of Intraglottal, Subglottal, and Vocal Fold Collision Pressures during Phonation in an Individual with a Hemilaryngectomy (https://www.mdpi.com/2076-3417/11/16/7256)
We believe this is the first time that vocal fold collision pressures have been accurately recorded in humans with expected waveshape characteristics.
Katie Marks successfully defended her PhD dissertation, "Toward Improved Assessment of Vocal Effort During Activities of Daily Living!"
Katie’s passion is in assessing and alleviating the excessive vocal effort experienced by patients suffering with voice disorders. I am very proud of Katie as she has steered multiple ships at the MGH Voice Center, including leading studies funded by my first independent grant...
Laura will be defending her PhD dissertation entitled, “The Role of Daily Voice Use and Personality in the Etiology and Pathophysiology of Phonotrauma in Singers," over Zoom on Thursday, June 3, at 12 noon ET. Contact me for details to join. Laura has played an integral role in our large P50 ambulatory voice monitoring project (read more at massgeneral.org/vhcrc). We are very proud of Laura's work the last four years and wish her well. Read more about Laura Toles' PhD defense date is set!
We are very excited to announce that Katie's doctoral dissertation defense date and time are set. She will be presenting her work via Zoom on Tuesday, April 20, at 1pm ET. The title of her thesis is, "Toward Improved Assessment of Vocal Effort During Activities of Daily Living." Contact me for details to join. We're very proud of Katie's sustained effort (pun intended) for the past four years that have guided the success of both my Early Career R21 project on non-invasive estimation of subglottal pressure and our large P50 ambulatory voice monitoring project (read more at ...

Daryush will be presenting work on applications of machine learning to voice disorder assessment at a virtual seminar series hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University (ml-in-medicine.org).
Very happy to see two of our lab's MGH IHP doctoral students, Katie Marks and Laura Toles, receive The ASHFoundation New Century Scholars Doctoral Scholarship. Katie's area of interest is in the study of vocal effort in patients with voice disorders, and Laura's area of interest is in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of hyperfunctional voice disorders. See their smiling faces and other awardees at ...
