    Research topics

    My current research focuses on probabilistic cognitive modeling of processing sequential auditory information and it follows two lines of investigation. First, I conduct behavioral experiments to explore how our brain infers acoustic sources in a noisy auditory environment. Second, I develop computational models that capture the brain’s mechanism for solving this problem.
