CNSP2022 Keynote
Liberty Hamilton, PhD

Liberty Hamilton is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin with a joint appointment in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Science and the Department of Neurology. She also holds an adjunct appointment in the Department of Neurosurgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Broadly, her lab studies how sounds are represented in the auditory cortex during natural speech perception and production, and how these representations change as a function of development, attention, and multimodal interactions with other sensory modalities. Her group uses a combination of intracranial recordings in children and adult patients with epilepsy, scalp EEG, and computational modeling to understand this process.

CNSP2022 Young Investigator Keynote
Narayan Sankaran, PhD

Narayan is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Edward Chang within the department of Neurosurgery at UCSF. Prior to his appointment at UCSF, he completed his PhD from the University of Sydney under the supervision of Simon Carlile. Broadly, his research seeks to understand the neural computations and specializations that underlie our perception of music. To do this he uses a combination of intracranial recordings in neurosurgical patients and MEG recordings in formally trained musicians.

CNSP2022 Invited talk
Giacomo Baruzzo, PhD

Giacomo Baruzzo is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Information Engineering at University of Padova. His research is aimed at developing algorithms, methods and software for the preprocessing and analysis of biological data from high-throughput sequencing technologies, especially single cell RNA-Sequencing, bulk RNA-Sequencing, DNA-Sequencing and 16S rDNA-Sequencing.

Tutorial Speakers
Joshua Kulasingham, PhD

Joshua Kulasingham is a Postdoc at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University, Sweden. He completed his PhD at the University of Maryland, College Park, USA, under the supervision of Prof. Jonathan Z. Simon. He is interested in neural processing of continuous speech and has worked with MEG responses to low-level and high-level speech features. He is currently working on encoding models to investigate the neural processing of speech using EEG.

Mike Thornton

Mike received his MPhys in physics from the University of Oxford in 2020 before starting his PhD at Imperial College under the supervision of Tobias Reichenbach and Danilo Mandic. He researches how the neural processing of continuous stimuli such as speech is reflected in a listener's electroencephalogram. Mike is particularly interested in attention and low-density wearable montages such as ear-EEG. He is a keen runner in his spare time.
