The Joshi Voice Lab

The Joshi Voice Lab, directed by Dr. Ashwini Joshi, is a part of the Dept. of Communication Sciences and Disorders (COMD), in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLASS) at the University of Houston.

 Our mission is to develop evidence-based assessments and treatments for voice disorders.



At The Joshi Voice Lab, we are committed to advancing the field of voice disorders research. Our team, led by Dr. Ashwini Joshi, is dedicated to developing low-cost, valid, diagnostic tools and evidence-based post-surgical rehabilitation techniques for benign vocal fold lesions. This research is currently funded by the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) at the National Institute of Health (NIH).  We believe that our research has the potential to significantly improve the quality of life for individuals with voice disorders.
