Description of Research Expertise

My research examines how the brain combines sensory, motor, and
cognitive cues to form internal computational models of the
external world. Specifically, my research program focuses on
understanding the representation of auditory information in the
cortex, how auditory information is integrated with cognitive
processes, such as attention, decision making, motor planning, or memory, and how auditory and visual information is combined to form unified sensory
percepts.
