Dr. Anaïs Rameau is an academic laryngologist and the current Chief of Dysphagia and Director of New Technologies in the Department of Otolaryngology at Weill Cornell Medical College. She has focused her scientific endeavors on the integration of novel technologies in the diagnosis and treatment of voice and swallowing disorders with the ultimate goal of decreasing cost of care, improving accessibility of specialized health services and detecting pathologies early. Much of her current focus is on the development of a bedside aspiration acoustic screening tool using artificial neural networks in the recognition of the “wet” voice, characteristic of patients with severe deglutitive disorders, funded by the National Institute on Aging prestigious Beeson Award. She is also a co-investigator on the Voice data generation project of the Bridge to AI initiative of the NIH Common Fund. She is leading the development of a silent speech wearable device for patients with limited phonation, and is actively researching the application of computer vision to automate diagnosis in video-laryngoscopy, a project funded by the American Laryngological Association. She is an alumna Young Leader of the French American Foundation.
