Paul Zimmer-Harwood

DPhil Student / Research Assistant

I am a DPhil student in the Auditory Neuroscience Group under the joint supervision of Prof. Andy King and Johannes Dahmen. I am investigating how motor-actions influence sensory perception and sound localisation - especially, how these aspects of our environment may be modelled and anticipated by the brain.

To understand how neural responses relate to auditory perception, I combine 2-photon imaging with novel behavioural tracking methods like deep neural networks for computer vision. 

Before coming to the Auditory Group in Oxford, I completed a BSc in Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrueck and a MSc in Neuroscience with a focus on the auditory system at the University of Oldenburg. I also had the chance to gain additional experience while working as a programmer in Robotic Program Automation over the past years and during a nine-month Internship in the Auditory Neuroscience Group under Tim Griffiths in Newcastle.
