Developmental Neuroscience

Interests

The focus of my research lies on combining electrophysiological and behavioural measures to improve speech perception in noise for people who have been provided with a cochlear implant (CI).

My research interests include the optimisation of CI fitting, as well as the mechanisms underlying pitch and envelope processing. I am currently working on determining how envelope processing relates to speech-in-noise perception in ageing, hearing impairment and for CI listeners. Further, I work on exploring new approaches for signal processing strategies in CI users to reduce spread of excitation.
