I am Brooklyn-based computer scientist and musician. 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 systems that enable new interactions for creative expression through sound and understanding the acoustic world at scale.

I am currently a Research Assistant Professor in NYU’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering with affiliations to NYU’s Music and Audio Research Lab and the Center for Urban Science and Progress. 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 two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Music and Audio Research Lab (MARL) at New York University (NYU).

As a musician, I exercise my passion for low frequencies, enveloping noise, and textural sound using computers, synthesizers, and bass. With experimental-rock trio volcano!, I released albums on The Leaf Label and toured the United States and Europe.
