Research

research overview

  • My research focuses on risk factors associated with age-related hearing loss, particularly cardiovascular disease risk factors. Behavioral and physiological approaches are used, including innovative otoacoustic emission applications. Supervised machine learning will be used for epidemiological datasets to explore these relationships.

Teaching

courses taught

  • SLHS 3014 - Hearing Loss Epidemiology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Introduces students to basic epidemiological concepts related to hearing loss. Provides an overview of the hearing mechanism, assessment and identification of hearing loss, prevalence of hearing disorders, treatment and intervention. Noise pollution, aging and toxic agents are discussed. Focuses on risk factors for hearing impairment and comorbidities.
  • SLHS 4704 - Audiological Evaluation
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Studies basic principles and techniques of hearing evaluation, including pure-tone, speech, immittance, and advanced audiometry; hearing conservation in hospital, school, and industrial settings; and identification and evaluation of auditory pathologies. Required projects in screening and pure-tone audiometry.
  • SLHS 6544 - Auditory Processes: Adult Assessment
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Advanced study on the current science surrounding hearing assessment of adults across the age span. Includes theoretical foundations and clinical applications.
  • SLHS 7450 - Audiology Capstone Project
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Summer 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019
    Provides an individualized project for AUD, completed prior to initiation of final clinical year. May be in the form of research-based investigation, an evidence-based position paper, a clinical protocol based on peer-reviewed literature, a grant proposal, or another format approved by AUD committee. Project requires approved proposal by AUD committee andfocused study supervised by capstone advisor.
