Short biography and a description of your interest(s) in music and health:

I am an Assistant Professor at UCSF with a joint appointment between the Institute for Health and Aging at the School of Nursing and the Department of Otolaryngology at the School of Medicine. I currently serve as the Scientific Analyst for the UCSF Sound Health Network Team. I am also a faculty member of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as I co-teach a class on Music and the Brain with Dr. Indre Viskontas.
