My research focuses on how different brain systems interact to construct representations of experienced events, and how these representations change over time. My approach is integrative and comparative. I am currently using techniques from the fields of experimental psychology, computational neuroscience, electrical engineering, and behavioral neuroscience to answer questions about auditory learning, memory, and behavior in humans and other animals.
I’m currently supervising graduate students in the Behavioral Neuroscience, and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior doctoral programs. These students are pursuing research related to dog cognition, autism spectrum disorder, and humpback whale bioacoustics.
