Education & Experience

Over the years, I have worked in multiple sectors, from small labs and start-ups to large technology companies. The product of my work has been an array of instruments and interfaces that that help people learn, perform, and connect through sound. I have experience working in interdisciplinary teams of diverse stake-holders posing new questions and creating innovative technologies. My research contributes to fundamental knowledge in the intersection of human computer interaction (HCI) and listening (e.g. sound, music).
