Assoc Prof McAuliffe leads the University of Canterbury Speech Production-Perception Research Laboratory (UC Speech Lab), is Deputy Director of the New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour (NZILBB) and leads the Language & Ageing Research Theme of the NZILBB. UC Speech Lab aims to conduct research of scientific and theoretical significance with clear application to the clinical practice of speech-language therapy and audiology. We study the interaction between the speech signal and a listener’s perception of that signal. We are particularly interested in adverse listening conditions, and use both naturally (e.g., dysarthric) and artificially distorted speech signals to investigate our questions of interest.
