Working to understand: human communication disorders from deafness and tinnitus to stuttering and language impairment
Scientific Focus: uses systems and modeling approach to understand how the ear and the brain work together to process sounds, including human speech and music. Develop and design innovative prosthetic devices and training procedures for people who have lost hearing and balance functions.
