I am an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at New Mexico State University. I am a quantitative psychologist by training, although the majority of my work falls within the domains of statistics, audio algorithms, and auditory interface design. I am currently the Principal Investigator on an NIH grant entitled Attention-Guided Speech Enhancement for Hearing Impaired Listeners. The project is focused on the development of an auditory device to improve the user’s auditory spatial selectivity. I have developed an auditory source separation algorithm that amplifies sounds coming from any specified direction. I am working to pair this with eye tracking hardware to allow the user to hear whatever they are looking at. Testing is currently underway with both normal and hearing-impaired users. Funding for graduate students is currently available under the grant; please email me if you are interested.
My web site includes a current copy of my CV as well as a list of my peer-reviewed Publications. The Publications page includes downloadable PDFs for nearly every article that I have been involved with.
