I collaborated with Paul Chyz and Prof. Chris Kyriakakis on a project in the Immersive Audio Laboratory exploring the effects of sound parameters on localization ability. Based on patterns I noticed in an earlier study, there were certain qualities of sound that we hypothesized would be strong predictors of confusion for localizing 3D sound and to test this hypothesis I designed and built a pivoting speaker rig, conducted over 50 individual data collections, and wrote this pre-print journal article on the topic.
