I am a psychologist, cognitive scientist, and neuroscientist with particular interests in music, language, and art as cognitive systems and products of the human mind and brain. My research methodologies include experimental / cognitive psychology, work with neurological patients (neuropsychology) including lesion localization, electroencephalography (EEG), and cross-cultural / cross-linguistic work.

I teach at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, as a member of the Psychology Field Group.
