Paul Fraccaro (2010, MRes with Distinction) Vocal responses to social cues

I completed a Masters of Research (with Distinction) in 2010. My research investigated how women modulate their voice pitch in social settings. When I left the Face Research Lab, I had published two first-authored papers, which secured me a funded PhD position at McMaster University's Voice Research Lab.
