I am a first-year Masters student at Stanford CCRMA
studying Music, Science, and Technology. My research interest is in music cognition, particularly familiarity in music. So far at Stanford, I have become involved with the Music Engagement Research Initiative (MERI)
and Takako Fujioka's Neuromusic lab.
I hold a bachelor of science degree from UCLA, where I studied cognitive science and minored in mathematics and musicology. During my time at UCLA, I did memory research with Robert and Elizabeth Bjork in the Bjork Learning and Forgetting Lab
and studied Balkan music with Ivan and Tzvetanka Varimezov
. I also have experience in software engineering and have interned at AT&T
and the startp Pathonomic, Inc.
More recently, I have become interested in audio recording and production and am working on several projects in that area.
I also love to sing and arrange music. I am currently performing with Stanford's all-female a cappella group Counterpoint
. Previously, I was the musical director of UCLA YOUTHphonics
and sang in the UCLA Chorale
