My work focuses on the bidirectional relationship between the immune system and social relationships. In particular, we are interested in how altering immune function with drugs like acetaminophen of ibuprofen affects social, neural, and psychological end points.
Current research interests include dynamic information processing, decision making, and computational modeling related to media and diet.
My research focuses on the development of speech perception in children, specifically their perception of foreign-accented speech.

I am interested in the auditory system, specifically with regard to how signal processing methods can facilitate speech understanding in noise for individuals with hearing loss.
Using experiments, neuroimaging, and musical corpus studies, I investigate the behavioural and neural correlates of musical expertise, uncertainty in melodic pitch expectations, computational modelling of statistical learning, musical emotions, and the evolutionary origins of human musicality and
