Latane Bullock, BA, BS
Latane is a Ph.D. student in the Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology program at Harvard University. He received his B.A. in Linguistics and B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rice University. His post-baccalaureate research at UT Health Science Center focused on the neural systems supporting speech perception and speech production using human intracranial recordings from epilepsy patients. His current Ph.D. research investigates the role of subcortical brain areas in speech production using intracranial signals recorded during deep brain stimulation surgeries. He's interested in vocal communication across species and using animal models to inform theories of motor control. He is a tool-maker and methodological pluralist. When he's not doing science, he's cycling, hiking and backpacking, playing spikeball, or baking sourdough.
