Current Projects

  • My pre-dissertation project investigates at the effects of musical and language background on pitch imitation ability. I am interested in the transfer of the ability across two domains.

  • I am also working on a side project that investigates the F0 and harmonics-to-noise ratio (HNR) in vocal data obtained virtually (via an online platform) and in-person (a laboratory).

  • For my qualify project, I examine whether musicians and non-musicians exhibit different brain activities while listening to familiar vs unfamiliar musical pieces using pre-existing fMRI data.
