I studied Mathematics and Musicology at Humboldt University Berlin and as a Fulbright visiting student at the University of California, Berkeley. Subsequently, I worked  at the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Vienna. I obtained my PhD in Music Technology from McGill University, Montreal, as a Harman Scholar of the Audio Engineering Society and as a fellow of the NSERC-CREATE Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Network. Since 2016, I am postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics at the University of Oldenburg. My research explores the borderlands between psychoacoustics, music perception, and audio signal processing. Specifically, I am  interested in timbre perception and cognition, auditory scene analysis in normal and impaired hearing, time-frequency music processing, and the modeling of sound quality.
