My research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction, machine learning, and audio signal processing. Specifically, I research human-centered machine listening and audio processing tools for understanding and creating sound.

I am an Assistant Professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology in the Department of Informatics and the head of the Sound Interaction and Computing (SInC) Lab. I completed my PhD in computer science at Northwestern University as a member of the Interactive Audio Lab, and I hold a Master of Arts from Stanford University (CCRMA) and a Bachelor of Music from Northwestern University. Before my current position, I spent four years as a researcher in the Music and Audio Research Lab (MARL) and the Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) at New York University (NYU).
