Professional & Research Background
I received my PhD in 2003 from Indiana University with a joint degree in Hearing Science and Neuroscience. My dissertation work, under the supervision of Robert Withnell, focused on cochlear mechanics. In this work, I measured amplitude-modulated stimulus frequency otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) in guinea pigs to test hypotheses about cochlear travel times and production mechanisms for OAEs. While at IU I also worked with Diane Kewley-Port in the area of speech perception.
I completed three years of postdoctoral training at Boys Town National Research Hospital (BTNRH), working with Douglas Keefe. During my post-doctoral training, the focus of my OAE research expanded to include the effects the medial olivocochlear (MOC) and the middle ear muscle (MEM) reflexes, on cochlear mechanics. To fund this research, I applied for, and was subsequently awarded an individual postdoctoral fellowship (F32) from the NIH.
During my time at BTNRH, I also completed my clinical certification in Audiology. My clinical fellowship at the BTNRH audiology clinic provided the unique opportunity to work extensively with pediatric hearing loss. I obtained the certificate of clinical competence in Audiology from ASHA in December, 2005.
In August 2006 I accepted the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Iowa.
