About me

I am a doctoral candidate at U.C. Davis studying hearing loss, auditory selective attention, and auditory neuroprostheses. My work is a cross collaboration between the Miller Lab, located in the Center for Mind and Brain and led by Dr. Lee Miller, and RASCAL (Robotics, Autonomous Systems, and Controls Laboratory), located on the U.C. Davis main campus and led by Dr. Sanjay Joshi.

Alongside my academic work, I am an advocate and proponent of free and open source (FOSS) technology. I am a senior member of the GNOME Foundation Engagement Team — mainly responsible for event organization, community management, and internal infrastructure — and from 2019 to 2020 I was elected to the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors.

If you would like to contact me for any reason involving my research, my email address is bwyazel@ucdavis.edu, or for my GNOME Foundation work please contact me at bwyazel@gnome.org.
