Alexandra Rieger is a scientist, musician and anti-disciplinary graduate researcher at the MIT Media Lab. Before coming to MIT, she received a Master’s Degree in Neuroscience, Synesthesia Research and Cross-Modal Sound Studies at Dartmouth College, received her Bachelor’s at Stanford University and is an Oxford University Bing Alumna. As a honorary United Nations youth ambassador, her social service work throughout the world (ranging from poverty alleviation, economic development to youth literacy initiatives) and myriad academic experiences, have informed some of the larger questions in her work. She is passionate about promoting neurodiversity and improving upon the human experience by creating pathways between the fields of neuroscience, music, technology and multisensory studies.  Through this, she seeks to develop and deploy sustainable solutions, assistive technologies and innovations for cognitive pathologies like Alzheimer’s and other challenges facing our communities and world.
