I study how the brain processes speech sounds.
Currently, I am using electrocorticography (ECoG) to directly measure neural dynamics of learning-induced changes from the surface of the human auditory cortex. Previously, I have used a combination of functional and structural neuroimaging methods (fMRI; DTI) as well as electroencephalography (EEG) to examine neural correlates of individual variability in speech sound learning.
