Research Interests
My previous and current research interests lie in the application of hearing instrument technology to improving communication skills. My past work has been in developing and evaluating tactile aids, cochlear implants, and hearing aids. In addition, I have been involved in defining and expanding the scope of practice of audiologists in the U.S.
