CIRMMT welcomes new Director

CIRMMT is very pleased to welcome Stephen McAdams, internationally acclaimed specialist in music perception, as our new director.

Coming to Canada from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (Ircam-CNRS, France), Dr. McAdams joined McGill University's Schulich School of Music in October of this year. He has recently been awarded a Canada Research Chair in Music Perception and Cognition, as well as a Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Infrastructure grant.

Dr. McAdams' main research interests are multimodal scene analysis, musical timbre perception, psychomechanics and sound source perception, as well as cognitive dynamics of musical listening. He holds a Ph.D. in Hearing and Speech Sciences (Stanford University), H.D.R. (D.Sc.) in Cognitive Psychology (Université René Descartes/Paris 5), and a B.Sc. in Psychology (McGill University).
