Anil Palaparthi, Ph.D.
Anil Palaparthi, Ph.D., is a data scientist for the Utah Center for Vocology and serves as a secretary for the National Center for Voice and Speech. In March 2021, he completed the Ph.D. in Bioengineering with a dissertation titled “Computational motor learning and control of vocal source for voice production.” His previous degrees include a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Utah and a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Andhra University, India. In 2020, he was elevated to Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
His research interests include Computational and Systems Neuroscience, Digital Signal Processing, Voice Biomechanics, and Speech Acoustics. For the past 11 years, Dr. Palaparthi worked on several topics related to voice research including neuromuscular control and learning of voice production, vocal source-filter dependency theory and model development, simulation of voice and speech production, and computational phonosurgical design and planning.
Dr. Palaparthi has published over 20 papers and served as first author for peer-reviewed journal publications in Speech Communication, Applied Sciences, Journal of Voice, Journal of Acoustical Society of America, and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. Additional co-authorships include publications in PLoS Computational Biology, Progress in Neurobiology, The Laryngoscope, Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing, and Mechanics of Time-Dependent Materials. He was co-author of the Journal of Voice publication “An Oral Pressure Conversion Ratio as a Predictor of Vocal Efficiency,” which was awarded Best Paper in Basic Science by the Voice Foundation. He is a guest reviewer for the Journal of Voice, Journal of Acoustical Society of America, Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, Journal of Biomechanics, Computers in Biology and Medicine, and Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica.
