ALEX KELL

I'm a PhD student with Josh McDermott in the Computational Audition Lab. I'm in MIT's Department of Brain + Cognitive Sciences and affiliated with the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines.

Broadly, I'm interested in auditory computation, neuroscience, and behavior -- and making links between all three. The two main lines of my PhD work focus on:
  1. Building better models of auditory cortical computation, using recent advances in deep learning.
  2. Understanding how we robustly encode sound sources of interest in the presence of real-world background noise.
I'm funded by the DOE's Computational Science Graduate Fellowship.

Before grad school I worked in Nancy Kanwisher's lab, and before that I went to Dartmouth.
