Thomas C. Walters

Tom's research focuses on content-based audio analysis, mainly using computational models of the human auditory system. Tom received an MSci in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge in 2004 and a PhD from the Centre for the Neural Basis of Hearing at the University of Cambridge in 2011.
