Research in the lab


Current projects in the lab focus on: 

  • Development of novel, improved techniques to measure auditory perception and neural encoding of sounds from cochlea to cortex (“chirped-speech” or Cheech) 
  • Clinical research applications to improve diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life outcomes in individuals with hearing loss 
  • Neuroplasticity—how the brain changes—due to a range of auditory-based experiences (e.g., music training, auditory learning, noise exposure) 
  • The relationship between individual auditory-perceptual, cognitive, and neural factors  
  • Perceptions and practice patterns of auditory electrophysiology techniques among U.S. audiologists
