Dr. Naghibolhosseini is an Assistant Professor in the department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders and the director of Analysis of Voice and Hearing Laboratory (AVAH Lab). The research in AVAH lab is focused on studying voice production, speech acoustics, and auditory sound processing.
Dr. Naghibolhosseini is applying advanced image processing, machine learning, and statistical analysis techniques to investigate the vocal function and its underlying mechanisms in norm and disorder. She also employs computational mathematics to perform biomechanical modeling of voice production and human auditory system. Her research goal is to determine the relationships between the vocal mechanisms, the generated speech sounds, and the perceived voice quality to improve voice assessment and treatment procedures.
She received her BS and MS in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering. She obtained her PhD from the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
She was the recipient of the 'ASHA Early Career Contributions in Research Award' in 2020, 'NIH NIDCD K01 Career Development Award' in 2019, Acoustical Society of America (ASA) Young Investigator Grant in 2018 by Women in Acoustics, and the 2017 Sataloff Young Investigator Award, co-sponsored by Elsevier and The Voice Foundation.
