Guest Researcher, Flatiron Institute

Ralph Peterson is a guest researcher at the Center for Computational Neuroscience (CCN) working with Alex Williams and is currently obtaining his Ph.D. in Neuroscience with Dan Sanes and David Schneider at New York University. His research focuses on understanding the neural basis of auditory processing in the natural world. Ralph combines computational ethology with wireless neurophysiological recordings to investigative social-vocal communication in Mongolian gerbils and self-generated sound processing in mice. Before coming to NYU, he studied computational neuroethology in Bob Datta’s lab at Harvard Medical School and received a B.S. in behavioral neuroscience from Northeastern University in 2016.
