I am currently a Research Associate in the Binaural Hearing and Speech Lab, where I am investigating how human listeners with and without cochlear implants perceive moving sounds in different acoustic environments. Prior to joining the lab, I received my B.Sc. in Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrueck in Germany. I then worked as a lab manager in the laboratories of Jim and Andrea Simmons at Brown University, where I studied the lateral line system of the bullfrog, and the echolocating bat’s representation of target and clutter objects. In 2013, I started graduate school in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. I received my M.A. and Ph.D. working with with Cindy Moss, investigating how freely-flying echolocating bats analyze complex acoustic scenes.
