Victoria Figarola is a Master's student in BME at CMU working under Dr. Shinn-Cunningham. She received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester. While at the U of R, she worked in an Auditory Neuroscience lab, understanding how individuals detect tones-in-noise (TIN).

Outside of the lab, Victoria enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, and yoga.
