David graduated from OSU with a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience and Philosophy with a focus on cognitive science. He is currently applying for the master's program in Speech Language Pathology with a singing health specialization, and he is working with SLAM lab's rhythm priming team studying binaural beats. David is passionate about the combined study of cognitive science, music cognition, music therapy and neuroimaging techniques. On the side, he designs event posters for concerts and makes screen-printed t-shirts. He also enjoys drawing, playing guitar, traveling, and going to concerts.
