About

I study how the nervous system enables listening. As a research fellow in Dr. Shihab Shamma's Neural Systems Lab, I use electrophysiology to measure neural plasticity during changes in perceptual goals, behavioral responses and acoustic contexts. The aim of my work is to understand the physiological basis of auditory attention.
