Biography

In collaboration between the Maddox and the SoundBrain Labs at The University of Texas at Austin, I research natural speech learning the aging. Using Mandarin tones as stimuli, we assess differences in strategies to understand how older adults may learn speech sounds differently from young adults. Another avenue of research that I conduct is to understand the cognitive benefits of musical experiences. Currently, this interest has taken form as researching artificial tone learning in musicians and non-musicians.
