Personal profile

Personal Statement

After earning his BSc degree in Turkiye, Kahraman gained experience in neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation, neurological intensive care, and speech and language therapy within a hospital environment. In 2020, he pursued an MSc in Speech Difficulties at the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry, and Health, part of the University of Sheffield. Kahraman completed his master's degree with a dissertation entitled A Systematic Review of The Potential Impact of 16p11.2 Deletion Syndrome on Speech Sound Disorders.

In 2022, Kahraman embarked on a PhD at the University of Strathclyde's Speech and Language Therapy Department. His current research project, "Exploring Characterisation and Sub-Classification of Ataxic Dysarthria," is supervised by Prof Anja Lowit and Dr Mario Parra Rodriguez. Alongside his PhD, Kahraman collaborates with international researchers, focusing on acoustic data analysis and ataxic dysarthria, enhancing his skills and knowledge in this field.

Research Interests

Kahraman's key research interest involves characterising ataxic dysarthria, a motor speech disorder linked to cerebellum damage. His work focuses on identifying its perceptual and acoustic traits to contribute to more targeted therapies. Through detailed perceptual analysis, Kahraman aims to highlight speech patterns that elucidate the disorder's neural underpinnings. Simultaneously, he's examining acoustic characteristics, searching for correlations with the disorder's severity or subtypes.

His interest extends to the broader realm of speech disorders, including potential genetic influences. By exploring the interplay between genetics, neurology, and speech production, he aims to enhance understanding and improve patient lives.

Kahraman also investigates cognitive profiles associated with different ataxia types, aiming to unearth potential links between cognitive performance and ataxic dysarthria manifestation. His holistic approach seeks to understand the complex interactions between motor, speech, and cognitive domains, to inform more personalised and multidisciplinary ataxia treatment strategies.
