Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of undergraduate courses. I particularly enjoy teaching introductory to psychology, sensation and perception, cognition, human neuropsychology, and statistics. No, that was not a typo…I really do like teaching statistics!
In general, I am interested in motor control. More specifically, I want to understand how sensorimotor feedback is used during motor planning and execution. My research has largely focused on the importance of auditory feedback during singing. To this extent, I have examined how individuals with differing levels of expertise rely on what they hear to control their voice fundamental frequency (pitch). I am also interested in other areas of perception and comparative cognition
