I want to understand how and why the brain changes when a person loses their hearing. In particular, I want to better understand why thinking and remembering are affected by hearing loss, and how hearing disorders such as tinnitus (“ringing in the ears”) emerge following hearing damage.
To do this, I use electrophysiology, behavioral studies, and computational methods in the realm of human auditory neuroscience.
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Sunnybrook Research Institute within the Department of Otolaryngology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and affiliated with the University of Toronto. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Speech Therapy and Audiology at the University of Montreal. I hold a Ph.D. in Psychology from McMaster University, and a M.A. in Speech in Hearing Science and B.Mus. in Music Theory from The Ohio State University.
