Dr. Elizabeth C. Godoy is a member of the technical staff in the Human Language Technology Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. She also serves on the Lincoln Technology Advisory Group, supporting the development and direction of strategic research for the Laboratory. Dr. Godoy’s research explores the intersection between speech, language, and image processing with focus on signal analyses, modeling, and transformations. Currently, she is investigating acoustic-linguistic cues of prosody and is developing new speech processing algorithms to target production features of the human lower vocal tract physiology that are observable using magnetic resonance imaging. Her expertise spans the contexts of speaker characterization and language learning with recent endeavors dedicated to understanding how individuals communicate under different emotional and neurologically disordered states.   

Before joining Lincoln Laboratory in 2013, Dr. Godoy conducted research for the Listening Talker Project under the European Union Framework 7 Future and Emerging Technologies at the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas, Crete, Greece. She investigated acoustic-phonetics of Lombard and Clear speaking styles and designed corresponding signal modifications to increase speech intelligibility.

From 2007 to 2011, Dr. Godoy was a member of the Speech Synthesis Group at Orange Labs R&D in France, where she completed her doctoral research on modeling and processing techniques for high-quality voice conversion.

Dr. Godoy received BS and MEng degrees in electrical engineering from MIT in 2006 and 2007, respectively. She earned her PhD degree in signal processing from Telecom Bretagne in 2011.
