Josh McDermott

Josh McDermott is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT, studying how people hear. His Laboratory for Computational Audition investigates all things auditory, operating at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and engineering. The lab’s long-term goals are to understand how humans derive information from sound, to improve treatments for those whose hearing is impaired, and to enable the design of machine systems that mirror human abilities to interpret sound.
