Mounya Elhilali received her PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2004. She is now an assistant professor at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. She directs the Laboratory for computational Audio Perception and is affiliated with the Center for Speech and Language Processing.  Her research examines the neural and computational bases of sound and speech perception in complex acoustic environments; with a focus on robust representation of sensory information in noisy soundscapes, problems of auditory scene analysis and segregation as well as the role of top-down adaptive processes of attention, expectations and contextual information in guiding sound perception. Dr. Elhilali is the recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator award.
