Collaborators include students and professors from other labs that are working with members of the Interactive Audio Lab.

Beverly Wright


Beverly Wright and her students seek to understand how to train people to increase their ability to hear subtle changes in pitch and rhythm-skills useful to musicians, physicians listening to heartbeats, as well as people learning a second language. Currently what they have found is that passive listening plays an important role as much as active listening to train the ear. You can learn more on her lab's website.

Gautham J. Mysore

Senior Research Scientist

Gautham J. Mysore is a senior research scientist at Adobe’s Advanced Technology Labs in San Francisco. His research is primarily in the field of computational audition. This largely involves developing signal processing and machine learning algorithms for various audio applications. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford. You can learn more on his website.

Andy Sabin

Ph.D. Student

Andy Sabin is a Ph.D. student in the Communication Sciences and Disorders department studying psychoacoustics and perceptual learning. His research in this lab uses knowledge about auditory perception and machine learning to design intuitive interfaces for audio processing software. Some of these interfaces attempt to learn the user's preference. You can find Andy's website here.

Ben Duane

Ph.D. Student

Ben Duane is a Ph.D. student in Music Theory and Cognition. He is currently working on a system for separating contrapuntal streams in MIDI files. His other interests include computational modeling of music cognition and the perception of musical texture. Visit his website.
