As a faculty member at the University of Michigan since 2003, I teach courses in sound recording, technical ear training, and musical acoustics and have diverse experience as a recording engineer. My research is concerned with technical ear training and critical listening and the development of audio processing tools for multichannel audio with applications in music and film sound recording.
I completed a master's degree in Sound Recording at McGill University in 1997 studying with Wieslaw Woszczyk, George Massenburg, and Steven Epstein. I continued my graduate studies at McGill, completing a Ph.D. in 2002. My doctoral advisors were Wieslaw Woszczyk and Daniel Levitin.
I have presented my research at conferences - primarily Audio Engineering Society (AES) conventions and conferences - in Europe, Canada, and the United States. I was elected to serve as a Governor of the AES from 2013 to 2015. Serving as Chair of the Audio Engineering Society Education Committee from 2004 to 2008, I was actively involved in the organization of student and education events at AES conventions. I am the founder of the University of Michigan AES Student Section, serving as its faculty advisor since 2003.
