After graduating from Grove City College, I pursued graduate study in the cognitive sciences at the University of California-Irvine which led to a Ph.D. I was then a postdoctoral scholar in the Auditory Perception & Neuroimaging Laboratory at UC-Irvine until I accepted a position as assistant professor of cognitive neuroscience at the College of Science, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at the National Central University in Taiwan.
My research interests involve using psychophysical and neuroimaging techniques to investigate perception and production mechanisms in accessing musical pitch from long-term memory. I am also interested in the use of complex auditory waveforms to investigate binaural system's sensitivity to localization of auditory objects in space. At the National Central University I teach Matlab programming and psychophysics.
