Welcome to my website. I’m Thomas Schatz, a postdoctoral associate at the University of Maryland — College Park, where I am advised by Naomi Feldman.

I study intelligence in humans—and other animals—as well as in machines, with a focus so far on perception, and in particular on the development of speech perception.
