Christa is a graduate of the University of Washington from the Speech and Hearing department with a minor in History. She is currently in her first year of the Doctor of Audiology program. When not hard at work in the lab, Christa enjoys camping, baking, and drinking coffee.
Lindsey recently graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Hoping to apply to graduate school in the upcoming year, she is working on an auditory divided attention study in the lab and is excited to start studying auditory braing computer interfaces.
Dean Pospisil joined the lab in the summer of 2012 after graduating from Pitzer College with a degree in Cognitive Neuroscience. His undergraduate research focused on how mouth movements influence pitch perception and his art thesis focused on creating new relationships between the senses. After spending a year abroad on a Watson Fellowship entitled “Art and Neuroscience: Feeling and Knowing”, he returned to the lab. He is now working on finding what factors assist behavioral markers of auditory-visual binding. He is applying to grad school for 2014 where he hopes to continue with research into multi-sensory integration.
Mark is a second year student in the Neurobiology and Behavior program and is currently pursuing his PhD in the lab. He graduated from the Biomedical Engineering program at Washington University in St. Louis where he became captivated by Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) because of their rehabilitative and augmentative potential. There he conducted research on a low-cost stroke rehabilitation BCI and real-time brain feedback systems while also developing a brain-controlled iPhone app. In his research at UW, Mark is focused on improving Brain Computer Interface technology through the incorporation of anatomical MRI data in the analysis of magnetoencephalography and electroencephalography brain recordings. He is supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).
