My current research interests are in the cognitive processes that transform the sensation of hearing into a complex auditory perceptual world. Currently I am working on two lines of investigation:
- How the perceptual organization of distinct auditory objects is modulated by higher cognitive functions, e.g. attention and voluntary effort
- How deterioration of the peripheral auditory system and higher cognitive functions differentially contribute to age-related hearing loss Beyond these interests, I am always fascinated by research in language acquisition, evolutionary psychology, and the computational modelling of perception, decision-making, and basic neural mechanics.
