It’s an engineer’s dream come true to see all of the fascinating research projects taking place at Marquette. I had the opportunity to spend a summer helping Dr. Jeffrey Berry with his ongoing work in the area of speech motor control. He needed a biocomputing student to help make his speech synthesizer software operate on a real-time basis. The goal was to give individuals with speech disorders a secondary means of vocal communication and a tool to help them regain some of their speech. It felt good to contribute so directly to a research project that might change people’s lives.
