I use electrophysiology, behavioral studies, and computational methods to understand how the human brain understands and reacts to what it hears. Broadly, I am interested in translating this research into applications for hearing assessment or enhancement.
Currently I focus my research on tinnitus and why it develops when hearing is damaged. I am also interested in how a normal-hearing brain predicts what it is about to hear through the dimension of time.
I am a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Speech Therapy and Audiology at the University of Montreal, funded by a grant from the American Tinnitus Association. I am affiliated with the International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research (BRAMS). I hold a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, & Behaviour from McMaster University, and a M.A. in Speech in Hearing Science and B.Mus in Music Theory from The Ohio State University.
I am an Associate Member of the Acoustical Society of America and The Association for Research in Otolaryngology.
