I am a graduate student working as a Research Assistant in the Music Entertainment Technology (MET) lab and as a Teaching Assistant in the ECE department. I graduated from Temple University in 2009 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. I also spent three summers working at Lockheed Martin MS2 in Moorestown, NJ, in the Sea Based Missile Defense Studies & Analysis group. My personal interests include performing (playing the piano) and listening to music.

Research Interests:

  • Machine Listening and Music Information Retrieval
  • Hardware Implementations of DSP Algorithms
  • Software Defined Radio
