Research Projects

Misophonia and other auditory affective processing

Exploring misophonia's relationship with positive and negative affective processing, i.e. ASMR and musical chills.

Science Communication Portfolio

A few of my favorite social media campaigns where I either 1) interviewed and communicated stories of graduate students or faculty's scientific work/passions or 2) promoted engagement from and for students.

Emotional Speech Prosody Projects

Comparing the behavior of major & minor music listening to speech.

Differences in Presentation Rate of Musical Stimuli

Many listeners cannot discriminate major vs. minor tone-scrambles regardless of presentation rate.
