Stephen David
Assistant Professor, Otolaryngology
Stephen joined the Oregon Hearing Research Center at OHSU in 2012. In addition to his primary appointment in the Department of Otolaryngology, he has joint appointments in Behavioral Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering. He is also affiliated with the Neuroscience Graduate Program, where he co-organizes the course on Systems Neuroscience. Before coming to OHSU, Stephen completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Shihab Shamma in the Neural Systems Laboratory at the University of Maryland.  In May 2004, he completed a Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley (joint program with UCSF), studying vision and attention with Jack Gallant.

Jean Liénard
Data Scientist
Jean is a mathematician and data scientist interested in using informatics tools to characterize the impact of professional mentorship on academic research careers. Before joining the group, he completed a Ph.D. with Benoît Girard at the Pierre and Marie Curie University and postdoctoral work with Alex Dimitrov and Nikolay Strigul at Washington State University.

 

Brad Buran
Postdoctoral Fellow
Brad Buran joined the lab as a postdoctoral fellow after previous training at the Liberman lab at Harvard and the Sanes lab at NYU and a brief stint in industry. He is interested in auditory perception and long-term plasticity resulting from hearing loss.

 

Luke Shaheen
Postdoctoral Fellow
Luke completed his Ph.D. in the Harvard-MIT HST program in Spring 2016, working in the lab of Charlie Liberman on problems related to hearing loss from chronic moderate noise exposure. As a postdoc in the lab, he is interested in understanding circuits that provide top-down control of auditory representation.

 

Jesyin Lai
Postdoctoral Fellow
Jesyin completed her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Purdue University, where she worked with Ed Bartlett on problems of age-related hearing loss. She is interested in questions of how auditory cortex learns complex natural sound representations.

Graduate Student
Daniela is a graduate student in the Neuroscience Graduate Program. She arrived at OHSU after completing a master's degree at the University of Trieste and a fellowship at the Italian Institute of Technology.

 

Zachary Schwartz
Graduate Student
Zack is a student in the NGP program who joined the lab in June 2014. He is interested in sensory representation and the influence of behavioral state on perception.

 

Sean Elkins
Research Assistant
Sean completed his undergraduate work in Micro and Molecular Biology at Portland State University. He is a working jointly with the David and Nuttall labs on studies related to peripheral hearing loss.

 

Ulysses Duckler
Research Assistant
Ulysses recently graduated from the University of Oregon and is interested in gaining experience studying sensory systems as he prepares to apply to graduate school in neuroscience.

 

Noaf Shofer
Summer Student
Noah is an undergraduate at Reed College majoring in Physics and pursuing a newly discovered interest in neuroscience. His work at OHSU in summer 2017 is funded by a Reed Opportunity Fellowship. His project is exploring ways to integrate behavioral state into auditory encoding models.

 

Jacob Penningtion
Summer Student
Jake is a student at Washington State University, Vancouver, where he is majoring in Neuroscience and Computer Science. His interest in the lab is in auditory neural encoding models.

Former lab members

 

Sean Slee
Postdoctoral Fellow
Sean joined the lab after completing his Ph.D. in Biophysics at the University of Washington and a subsequent postdoctoral position at Johns Hopkins University. He is interested in studying behavioral effects on early auditory representations.

 

Ivar Thorson
Research Software Developer
Ivar completed his Ph.D. in Robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology. He worked in the lab on analysis and computational modeling of nonlinear systems. In 2014, he moved on to work on his robotics start-up company.

 

Charles Heller
NGP Rotation Student
Charlie started in the OHSU Neuroscience Graduate Program in 2016. He completed his undergraduate work at St. Olaf College in 2016, where he majored in Physics and performed research in the retina. His interest in is computational modeling, especially of neuronal population dynamics.

 

Henry Cooney
Research Assistant
Henry recently joined the lab as a research assistant. He completed his B.A. in Psychology at Reed College in 2011, where he completed a senior research project studying the role of endocannabinoids in emotional memory with Paul Currie. He has moved on to pursue a graduate degree in electrical engineering.

 

Will Chertoff
Programmer
Will Chertoff is a recent graduate from Kansas State University who programmed the overhaul for the front- and back ends of the the Academic Tree project. He is now a web designer in Portland.

 

Scott Leedy
Undergraduate Research Assistant
Scott worked in the lab during our initial setup in Summer 2012. He completed a B.A. at the University of Oregon in political science and is interested long-term in a career in medicine.

 

Kathryn Schelonka
Undergraduate Research Assistant
Kathryn majored in Psychology at Reed College and worked on data analysis projects in the lab during the summer of 2013.

 

Ben Mayinger
Summer Student
Ben is a student at Lincoln High School in Portland who has helped with behavioral training and computational analysis in the summers of 2015 and 2016.
