Sarah Smith received her PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rochester in 2019 with a dissertation on instantaneous frequency analysis of reverberant audio. She also holds a BA from Cornell University with a double major in Physics and Music and a MA in Music, Science, and Technology from Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Her research combines musical acoustics and audio signal processing to study the properties of musical sounds, particularly instrumental vibrato. In her role on the instructional faculty, Sarah teaches an introductory course sequence in Audio and Music Engineering and an upper-level project-based course in musical acoustics.
