Brief Biographical Sketch:

Although I currently study biomedical engineering, I studied electrical engineering for my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. I specialized in digital signal processing (DSP) before working in the audio industry designing effects for guitar pedals. I left that industry to write firmware for medical devices, and now I study medical imaging and medical image analysis at Yale.

E1022: Audio: Sound and Music from an Engineering Perspective in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
Do you like music? Have you ever wondered what makes different musical instruments sound so different? Have you ever heard of a synthesizer? This class aims to introduce concepts of frequency and harmonics and apply them to the world of audio signals. Lastly, audio synthesis will be discussed before a demo using a subtractive synthesizer.
