    Talk Title: Improved Real-Time MRI of Speech Production

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: Human speech is a unique capability that involves complex and rapid movement of vocal tract articulators. Real-time (RT) MRI has provided powerful insight into speech production because of its ability to non-invasively and safely capture the essential dynamic features of the vocal tract during speech. My dissertation is motivated by unmet needs in the field of speech RT-MRI, specifically blurring artifacts and volumetric coverage. In this talk, I will describe two new deblurring methods and a new 3D RT-MRI technique.

    Biography: Yongwan Lim is a PhD candidate in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Southern California, co-advised by Prof. Krishna S. Nayak and Prof. Shrikanth Narayanan. His research interest includes real-time magnetic resonance imaging, computer vision, and deep learning for medical imaging. He received his B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Sogang University in 2012 and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2014.
