Sam Mehr's Lab
Courtney Hilton is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, where he works in Sam Mehr’s Music Lab. His research asks about the nature of the musical mind, and how music interacts with other cognitive abilities like language. Having originally trained as a musician (a classical guitarist, under the tutelage of Timothy Kain AM) at the Australian National University, he went on to get a doctorate at The University of Sydney, working with Micah Goldwater. His PhD thesis explored the cognitive effects of metrical rhythm in language processing.
