Andrew Dykstra

Assistant Professor Biomedical Engineering




I earned my BS and MS in electrical engineering from the University of Miami and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), respectively before earning my PhD in auditory neuroscience from MIT. I spent time as a postdoc in the Department of Neurology at Heidelberg University (Germany) and The Brain and Mind Institute at Western University (Canada) before joining the UM faculty.

Research Interests

Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience, Neural Engineering
