Current Research and Interests:

I am working towards my Ph.D. in Ecological Psychology. My current research in the Music Dynamics Lab is primarily focused on capturing group music dynamics (such as drumming) using nonlinear dynamics modeling to inform my qualitative investigations of group music performance as a collective bonding experience. Additionally, I am currently investigating how mechanical coupling during singing affects synchrony during performance using auditory and physiological measures.
