Ingo Titze, Ph.D., SVI Director and Professor, The University of Iowa, and Director of Research, National Center for Voice and Speech, University of Utah.

Dr. Ingo Titze, a premier voice scientist and self-described enthusiastic bari-tenor, directs the Institute. He was among the first to envision a need for interdisciplinary voice specialists, and he coined the term vocology. He is joined by an esteemed faculty roster that includes voice scientists, singing teachers, acting coaches and speech-language pathologists.
