Graduate Student
Keith Doelling



Keith completed his PhD studying with Dr. Pesaran in the Center for Neural Science as well as Dr. David Poeppel in the Psychology Department. In his undergraduate education, studying Cognitive Neuroscience and Music at Harvard University, he conducted research on the role of rhythm perception and production in dyslexia and linguistic ability. After graduating, he worked in Dr. Poeppel’s lab, studying interactions between neural oscillations in the brain and rhythms in speech and music and demonstrating the necessity of such interactions for speech comprehension. As a PhD candidate, he worked on interactions between sensory and motor systems during speech perception as well as modeling neural dynamics. Keith was supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and is currently transitioning into postdoctoral research.
