There are various lines of active research in both voice laboratories on campus. Current voice research focuses on methodologies, singing, whisper, various phonation aspects, and physical and computer modeling. The voice laboratory has active collaborations with the music and physics and astronomy departments at Bowling Green State University. In addition, the voice laboratory has collaborations with researchers outside the BGSU community.
