RÉSUMÉ | PROJECTS | EMAIL ME
I am currently working on my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Purdue University. I'm working
with Dr. Michael Heinz to study the neural basis of hearing.
The program includes about 30 hours of course work and about 60 hours of research. Available classes include:
"Auditory Neural Processing"
"Biomedical Signal Processing"
I received my Masters Degree in Music Engineering
at the University of Miami. The program included 12 credits of Electrical Engineering courses
(Digital Signal Processing), 13 credits of Music Technology, 5 credits of Psychoacoustics,
and a Research Project. The classes include:
"Advanced Digital Signal Processing"
"Filterbanks and Wavelets"
"Advanced Perceptual Coding"
I focused most of my courses and projects on psychoacoustics, audio coding and 3D audio.

My thesis was entitled "Auditory Component Analysis: Using Perceptual Pattern Recognition to Identify and Extract Independent Components From an Auditory Scene".
From 2005 through 2007, I worked full-time in the Audio Processing department at Shure Incorporated
where I participated in a couple Advanced Development (aka Research and Development) projects.
I also spent the previous two summers at Shure helping develop algorithms for future DSP products. In the summer of 2004, I ported about a dozen algorithms over to a new platform and developed a protocol for audio
information to be sent from the DSP to the Microcontroller. Over the previous summer, I wrote some new algorithms and ported another from a floating-point processor to
a fixed-point processor.
Before Shure, I spent three summers at Motorola doing everything from reverse engineering other company's cell phones to designing the audio system for OnStar. Before that, I spent a summer doing electronics assembly and repair at DriveCon.
