Adam Lammert is Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Prior to joining the faculty at WPI, he spent four years as a Technical Staff Scientist in the Bioengineering Systems & Technologies Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT LL), and one year as Visiting Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Swarthmore College (Swat CS). He holds an Adjunct Assistant Professor appointment at Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. He received an A.B. in Cognitive Science from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY in 2004 (JHL Lab/Undergraduate thesis), and an M.S. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University in 2006 (Master's thesis). From 2006 to 2008, he was Lab Manager of Speech and Hearing Research at the Veterans Affairs Northern California Health Care System in Martinez, CA (SHR). He earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California in 2014. While at USC, he was a member of the Signal Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory (SAIL/SPAN) and the Hearing and Communication Neuroscience Program at the House Research Institute. He was awarded the Raymond H. Stetson Scholarship in Phonetics and Speech Science by the Acoustical Society of America in 2013. His research efforts have been funded by DoD, NIH and NSF. He has published over 45 peer-reviewed papers, several of which have been awarded special status. His research is focused on behavioral analytics for neurocognitive assessment, developing novel methods that enable machines to find meaningful patterns in human behavior, and gain awareness of human neurocognitive states. Work in this area involves the development of devices and signal processing for quantification of human behavior, as well as computational models of cognitive and sensorimotor mechanisms.
