I am interested in the way in which the mind organizes sequences of events in real time during production and perception. I am particularly interested in sensorimotor interactions that occur during the production of complex sequences such as music and speech. Specific research programs include the way in which people use the sounds they create (auditory feedback) to maintain fluency in production, individual differences in the vocal imitation of pitch, the role of memory retrieval in production, and the way in which sequence structure guides the perception of sequences.
