Research

My research interests revolve around sound synthesis, virtual acoustics, and spatial audio. I wrote my master's thesis on Iannis Xenakis's use of spatialization in his music. While at Stanford, I've been on techniques for recording and performing in virtual acoustic spaces, techniques for signal decorrelation, and a variety of sound synthesis algorithms.
