I am a Research Engineer at Boston University’s Hearing Research Center. For full details on my code, check out the repos I contribute to on GitHub.

Research

My research interests focus on modeling the behavior of the human auditory system. In particular I am interested in studying cochlear synaptopathy and its upstream effects in the brainstem and midbrain to better understand the hearing impairments it may cause.

Corti

I have developed Corti, a flexible modeling environment for the evaluation of subcortical auditory systems, as part of my Master’s Thesis.

The ESME project

ESME is a GIS tool to help environmental regulators and marine biologists estimate the effects of anthropogenic noise on whales and other marine mammals. Its code is hosted here.

The Unlock project

I have developed new functionality for unlock, a brain-computer interface for severely paralyzed patients that uses EEG for computer control.

NinjaGame

I have worked on NinjaGame, a video game tool for speech rehabilitation for children with cleft palates.

Education

I received my M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University. My Master’s thesis explored using Corti to characterize the behavior of auditory models.

I received my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University. My undergraduate research focused on neural modeling of auditory processing in zebra finches.
