Research summary

My research is concerned with hearing impairment  and binaural hearing.

Binaural hearing helps listeners to understand speech in noise, but some hearing impaired  listeners demonstrate little benefit from  binaural hearing. One would expect that hearing aids would help but this  is not always the case. The focus of my research will be directed towards  improving our understanding of this process and the difficulties encountered by  hearing aid users with the ultimate goal of helping hearing aids users  understand speech in the presence of competing noise.
