This is my short-form research introduction. Click here to view this page in more detail.
Currently, I'm a clinical research coordinator for Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY.
From 2018-2022, I was employed by Johns Hopkins Hospital as a clinical neuroscience research assistant specializing in movement disorder projects. I ran studies involving music as treatment (guitar playing, regular music during exercise), and I also coordinated projects aiming to examine patients with atypical parkinsonism and their long-term biomarkers. I was published in 2022; click here to read the article we wrote about guitar therapy.
In 2019, I worked briefly with the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences on projects involving romantic relationships and linguistic construal.
My primary research interests are in the fields of cognitive science and music especially insofar as music can be used to study aspects of cognition not traditionally associated with music (language, communication, memory).
