Lisa Kopf and Jina Huh-Yoo. 2020. A User-Centered Design Approach to Developing a Voice Monitoring System for Disorder Prevention. The Journal of Voice. In Press
This paper was born out of Lisa’s PhD thesis, in which Wei Peng, Rahul Shrivastav, Dimitar Deliyski, myself, and Eric Hunter was a committee of. My selfish interpretation of its contribution is spreading the framework of User-Centered Design to clinical publication venues. At the heart of this effort is Lisa’s persistence and passion to incorporating this very interpretive, small sampled, qualitative work of human-computer interaction to her clinically oriented, quantitative, and experimental work leaning field of voice and communicative disorders.
