I'm a postdoc at Columbia University's Zuckerman Institute, working with Elias Issa. In 2019, I got my PhD at Brain & Cognitive Sciences at MIT, working in Josh McDermott's Computational Audition Lab.
Broadly, I'm interested in auditory computation, neuroscience, and behavior -- and making detailed connections between all three.
The two main lines of my PhD work focused on:
- Building better models of auditory cortical computation, using recent advances in deep learning.
See: 2018 Neuron paper and 2019 COiNB review.
- Understanding how we robustly encode sound sources of interest in the presence of real-world background noise.
See: 2019 Nature Communications paper.
Before grad school I worked in Nancy Kanwisher's lab, and before that I went to Dartmouth.
