Sophia Luo received a departmental Undergraduate Research and Travel Award for her participation in the Fall Acoustical Society of America meeting. Sophia assisted with the project “Tongue bracing under bite block perturbation”. These awards were established in 2017 with gifts to the UCLA Phonetics Lab from former undergraduates Cheng Cheng & Loke Tan, and Vernon Austel. They offer funding for undergraduate research and research/conference travel for all areas of linguistics (not just phonetics).
