Ana wins ASA award


Ana Rodriguez ’24 received the Robert W. Young Award for Undergraduate Student Research in Acoustics from the Acoustical Society of America. The award was established as a gift to the Acoustical Society Foundation made by the family of the late Robert W. Young in his honor to support undergraduate research. Her research project is investigating (i.) how the lips, tongue, and jaw work together to produce smooth and coordinated vocal tract movements during skilled speech production, using electromagnetic articulography, and (ii.) whether (and how) extent of skill in  coordinating speech movements relates to phonological language skills. The award comes with $480 to cover research participant compensation fees.

Congrats, Ana!
