Kristin Teplansky is a PhD student and Research Assistant at The University of Texas at Austin advised by Dr. Jun Wang. Her research focus is on kinematic measures of speech motor control in individuals with dysarthria secondary to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Kristin also analyzes tongue and lip motion patterns in voiced, silent, and alaryngeal speech.
