EDUCATION
May, 2012 Indiana University Ph.D. Cognitive Science, Area -Neural models & motor control, Minor -Linguistics;
May, 2002 Indiana University B.A. Individualized Major, Area-Music cognition.

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS
I have a long time interest in machine learning for temporal patterns. My particular
focus has been on the development of artificial neural networks for speech motor learning
and control with perceptual feedback. I have a strong background in speech and audio
digital signal processing, Bayesian networks and Markov models, synchronizing
resonator models, control theory, connectionist and dynamical systems, and experiment
design and statistical analyses. I am interested in applying these skills to interesting
projects while working with a diverse set of exceptional team members.
