Malinda McPherson


I am a lesbian and I am an auditory neuroscientist. //

I am a PhD student in the Harvard-MIT Program in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology, where I study pitch perception. I completed my MPhil at the University of Cambridge Centre for Music and Science. I was a Churchill Scholar, and attended Churchill College. Before Cambridge, I was an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University. When not in lab I can be found playing viola, rowing, or planning my next backpacking trip. I volunteer teaching sexual health to 8th graders, and serve on the Steering Committee for the Young Leaders Council of Fenway Health, an LGBTQ health care, research, and advocacy organization. Proud to be part of this amazing community.
