Note! I've moved.
As of mid-1999, this page won't be updated anymore, other than to fix broken links.
Welcome! Come on in. Please excuse the clutter.
Who Am I?
I used to be a graduate student at M.I.T.,
in the EECS Ph.D. program. I worked
at The Media Lab, under the auspices
of the Machine Listening (Now Music, Mind and Machine) Group. Now that I have finished by
Ph.D., I'm working at Bose Corporation in
an advanced development group. My research at M.I.T. centered around the
application of signal processing and artificial intelligence techniques
to the construction of useful systems that "understand" sound.
My research interests range from aspects of auditory perception -- such as sound-source
recognition, auditory scene analysis, and spatial hearing -- to content-based
indexing/retrieval of multimedia data, music synthesis, and music production.

I'm also a compulsive reader and an obsessive music
fan, as well as happily married, which you can
discover on my personal page.
- Professional Info - My research, my
resume, my publications.
- Sound-Source Recognition: A Theory and Computational Model - My doctoral dissertation.
- Vital Stats and Other Useless Information -
What a homepage is all about: personal information, likes, dislikes, and
- Two Ton Shoe - My former favorite band. All four members
are fantastic musicians, but the rhythm section is the big stand-out --
Dave DiCenso is a monster drummer,
and Jeff Gilman (on bass) is psychically
linked to Dave's groove. I had the pleasure of working with them from
mid-1994 (before Two Ton Shoe, they were Mystery Jones) to 1999, to
build a homepage and
- My Reading Journal - I'm a compulsive
reader, mostly of literary fiction. I started keeping brief notes on my
reading in early 1995, and the result is this suite of web pages, which are
updated every few days. (Major reorganization occurred on 12 Feb. 1997; Moved to a new server on 15 Oct. 2001)
- My new homepage -
Very much a work in progress.
- HRTF Measurements of a KEMAR - Lots of people
come here for this free data set for "3D" sound, which I (along with
Bill Gardner) measured in 1994.
