About us ...

We are a small group of faculty, staff and students that conduct scientific research on human hearing. We are particularly interested in how the detection and recognition of complex sounds is affected by both lawful and random variation in sound as occurs in nature. A goal of our research is the development of computational models for predicting detection and recognition performance under various conditions of signal uncertainty. Other areas of research include the perception of auditory motion, auditory frequency selectivity and masking in normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners, hearing assessment of typically-developing children and evaluation of the auditory preferences of children with autism spectrum disorder.
