Dr. Shamma is a member of the University of Maryland faculty since 1984 when he started as an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department. He is associated with the Institute for Systems Research. The goal of his research is the representation of the acoustic signal at various levels in mammalian auditory systems. This ranges from theoretical models of auditory processing in early and central auditory stages, to neurophysiological investigations of the auditory cortex, to psychoacoustical experiments of human perception of acoustic spectral profiles.
