About

I am a postdoctoral fellow working with Charles Limb in the Music and Auditory Perception Laboratory in the Department of Otolaryngology: Head & Neck Surgery at JHU School of Medicine. I investigates the neural processes underlying pitch, rhythm and tonality, and the role of 1/f (fractal) structure in these processes. I received my PhD (2010) in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences from Florida Atlantic University. There, I was the system administrator for Edward Large's Music Dynamics Laboratory where I studied and published on the temporal fractal characteristics (tempo, beat, meter) of music perception and production.
