I study how people hear. My lab investigates all things auditory, operating at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and engineering. Our long-term goals are to understand how humans derive information from sound, to improve treatments for those whose hearing is impaired, and to enable the design of machine systems that mirror human abilities to interpret sound.
