Dr. Christian Stilp (right; christian dot stilp at louisville dot edu) originally hails from the great state of Wisconsin. He received his B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in 2003, then earned his Ph.D. in 2011 from the University of Wisconsin working with Keith Kluender. He was a post doc at Case Western Reserve University in Mike Lewicki's Natural Perception Lab before joining the faculty at the U of L in 2012. When he's not contemplating the mysteries of auditory perception, you will probably find him cheering for Liverpool Football Club. For the record, on this trial, his son Graham said "ba".
