His research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction, audio signal processing, and machine learning. He completed his PhD in computer science at Northwestern University as a member of the Interactive Audio Lab, where his research focused on creating new interfaces and tools for music production that support creativity by rethinking the traditional interaction paradigms. He received a Master of Arts from Stanford University (CCRMA) and a Bachelor of Music from Northwestern University. He won a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship to fund his Ph.D. and was a visiting researcher at the Center for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London and Adobe's Creative Technology Lab.
