Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Psychology, Macquarie University

My research broadly investigates the cognitive and sensory mechanisms that underpin perception of complex and dynamic sounds (e.g., music and environmental sound). I have primarily published research on loudness and affective responses to music. More recent work investigates auditory attention and motion perception in the context of spatial hearing; the social, psychological, and neurological implications of violent music; and the neuroscience of creativity in the context of music performance.
