I am an Electrical Engineering doctoral student in Dr. Litovsky’s lab. I moved to Madison in 2017 after completing the M.S. and B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Tufts University. I am interested in audio signal processing and binaural hearing. Many of the great achievements of electrical engineering have been driven by communication – Bilateral cochlear implants offer another frontier for the advancement of human-to-human communication. My future work will include improving spatial hearing and spatial release from masking in bilateral cochlear implant users. I am co-advised by Dr. Bill Sethares ( in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. When not in the lab, I play music and read.
