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.
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.
