About Me

I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego. As a member of Dr. Sarah Creel's Language Acquisition and Sound Recognition Lab, I am interested in human auditory and motor processing. I am particularly interested in how we hear, move, speak and think rhythmically. Using techniques and knowledge from computational modeling, psychophysics, electrophysiology and ethnomusicology, I apply the filter of musical rhythm and entrainment to understand broader questions about how we interact with our environment and how we learn and change over time.

Other interests of mine include California and Pacific history and playing percussion and mandolin.
