Summary

My research interests lie within auditory cognitive-neuroscience, focusing on affective processing and auditory streaming, but also with an interest towards multi-modal processing. My work at University of Zurich is concerned with the perception of affective voices in noisy conditions, and the underlying neural correlates responsible for accurate perception and categorization.
