Description of Research Expertise:

My research interest are in auditory-vocal integration, central auditory processing, and cochlear implant-related central auditory plasticity. Specifically, I study how the auditory system processes complex inputs, like speech or vocalization, and how auditory feedback is used during vocal production to control speech/vocal output.
