Jessica Huber received her Ph.D. in Speech Science from the University at Buffalo - State University of New York in June 2001. She joined the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University in Fall 2001. Professor Huber was trained in the collection and analysis of physiologic data from the speech subsystems (respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory). Specifically, she uses kinematic, aerodynamic, and acoustic analyses to describe how these subsystems function in speech. Professor Huber's primary area of research is speech motor control in both normal individuals and individuals with motor speech disorders, in particular Parkinson’s disease. She is also interested in how individuals maintain balance in the face of other daily tasks, in particular speaking. Currently, she is funded by the National Institutes of Health to study the treatment of speech changes associated with Parkinson's disease.
