Joyce Huh was born and raised in San Jose, CA. She is an M.S. candidate in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a bilingual emphasis track in Korean. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Pacific in with a B.S. in Speech-Language Pathology and a double minor in Ethnic Studies and English. Joyce enjoys traveling through a backpacker's lens, and has spent a summer backpacking across Turkey, ultimately ending up in the Republic of Georgia where she worked on a farm for people with disabilities.
More recently, her interests in humanitarian work and the SLP field were bridged in Ghana, where she had the privilege of providing speech and language services to children and adults. As a research assistant in Dr. Levy's lab, Joyce's primary contributions lie in a research experiment involving a trilingual stroke patient. Her interests in research were piqued as an undergrad, where she explored the cultural and social implications of accent modification programs as a capstone to her Ethnic Studies minor. She is specifically interested in working with adolescents with developmental disabilities, who also come from multilingual backgrounds. Joyce finds her participation in the Speech Production and Perception Lab to be the indisputable highlight to her grad school experience, and has nothing but love and appreciation for Dr. Levy and the fabulous lab team.
