In my research field of interest, psychological acoustics, I am involved in several disciplines including physics, electrical engineering, neurophysiology, and psychology. My appreciation for interdisciplinary thinking began during my undergraduate studies at Hope College. My training in physics and electrical engineering has become very useful in my field to design interesting and novel signals for acoustic and electric psychoacoustical experiments. My current research objectives are to continue in the field of cochlear implants (CIs) with an emphasis on binaural hearing and aging in CI users. 

I am a member of the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program (NACS), the Center for the Comparative Evolutionary Biology of Hearing (C-CEBH), and the Maryland Language Science Center (LSC).
