Emily Graber is a researcher and musician and current Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow. Her project, Ear Stretch, focuses on augmenting enjoyment of contemporary music through active tempo control, evaluated by physiological signals. Ear Stretch is hosted by the CNRS at the STMS lab in IRCAM, and supervised by Elaine Chew.
Emily previously studied violin performance and physics at the University of Michigan, then received her PhD at Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics in 2018. Her doctoral research with Takako Fujioka focused on how performers and listeners anticipate and experience musical tempo changes. Her dissertation, “Neural Correlates of Top-Down Musical Temporal Processing,” examined the process of temporal anticipation with neuroimaging. Following her PhD, Emily was a postdoctoral fellow at the Sunnybrook Research Institute in Toronto, where she examined how interactive musical training assists in rehabilitating speech processing in deaf adults with cochlear implants.
