Undergraduate Student Researcher
Theodore is an undergraduate in the BXA Intercollege Degrees Program studying neurobiology and music composition. He is particularly interested in the systems of perceptual attention in the auditory system and how our brain learns how to make sense of complex auditory environments. His Dietrich College Honors Thesis, titled Training dynamics for sustained auditory selective attention, investigates mechanisms and patterns of learning for improvements on sustained auditory selective attention and how these paradigms used in the lab may have generalization to environmental forms of listening. He plans to continue to combine psychoacoustics and music composition through further study in experimental music composition after graduation from Carnegie Mellon.
