I'm interested in using deep learning to do magical things with audio.



I got my PhD from MIT in 2019 using deep learning to build the best model of the auditory brain. I was a Computational Science Graduate Fellow through the DOE and affiliated with the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines. After that, I did a postdoc at Columbia and worked at an early-stage deep tech startup.

The papers I'm most proud of:
  1. Building better models of auditory cortical computation, using advances in deep learning.
    See: 2018 Neuron paper and 2019 COiNb review.
    (An overview of this and related work from Wired/Quanta.)


  2. Understanding how we robustly encode sound sources of interest in the presence of real-world background noise.
    See: 2019 Nature Communications paper.
