Area:psychoacoustics, auditory psychophysics, clinical expert systems, evoked potentials
Worked with Thorne Shipley as an undergraduate at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute 1969-1970 on visual and multi-sensory evoked potentials. Went to graduate school at Washington University (St. Louis) where I worked with Hallowell Davis on auditory and multi-sensory evoked potentials, Jim Miller on auditory elements of speech perception, and Chuck Watson on cognitive aspects of auditory perception (Experimental Psychology, Ph.D., 1974).
Moved on to a post-doc with Dave Green at Harvard in the Laboratory of Psychophysics (1973-1976) where I collaborated with Dave and Walt Jesteadt on several papers in fundamental auditory psychophysics.
Spent 1976-77 at Northwestern where I had been recruited by Raymond Carhart. Dr. Carhart unfortunately suffered a fatal heart attack prior to my arrival and I spent a year setting up a computer-based laboratory for testing human hearing before moving on to the University of Arizona.
At Arizona I taught classes, wrote grants and had the pleasure of working with Ted Glattke on some early acoustic emissions work. I also completed the clinical requirements for certification in Audiology.
In 1978 I took a tenure-track Assistant Professorship in the Speech and Hearing Program at the University of Washington.
In 1983 I took a tenured Associate Professorship in the Communications Disorders Program at the University of Texas, Austin. In the Spring of 1987 I took a semester-long sabbatical in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at UT working on the development of expert systems for clinical decision making.
In the Spring of 1988 I left academia to work for Mentor Graphics in Portland, OR as a Technical Marketing and Product Manager.
In 1993 I took a position with the Advanced Research Project Agency at DOD as a Program Manager overseeing work on human computer interaction.
In 1995, I moved to Silicon Valley where I partnered with Tom Gruber and Peter Friedland to start a company to develop knowledge management software. We secured VC funding and opened our doors in January, 1996, as Colloquy Software, later changing the name to Intraspect, Inc. In 1999 I left Intraspect, moved to Orcas Island, WA and, with my wife, formed a consulting and services company focused on the use of the Intraspect software. I retired in 2006 and moved to my present location in Port Townsend, WA.
