Welcome to our Lab at the University of Maryland


We study cochlear implants (CIs), auditory prostheses that can restore speech understanding to the profoundly hearing-impaired.

Our research currently focuses on the benefits of having two CIs, how new CI processing strategies might improve speech understanding in noise and sound localization, and how natural aging impacts the brain's ability to encode and interpret sound across time.
