Music production and engineering professor Susan Rogers saw much success as a recording engineer, mixer, and producer, working with such artists as Prince, the Jacksons, India.Arie, Barenaked Ladies, and Laurie Anderson. Then she decided it was time for something different and left the music business to pursue life as a scientist, studying psychology and neuroscience, and then music perception and cognition. 

Rogers has found in Berklee a platform to combine both of these worlds, teaching classes in MP&E as well as music perception and cognition.

Hear Rogers talk about her intriguing journey from studio to lab and back again.
