Research/Clinical Interests

  • My research focuses on Neuroaudiology. Specifically, I am researching central auditory processing pathways and attempting to determine specific generator sites of Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) waveforms on EEG in animals. A research piority is auditory and vocal mechanism pathologies in canines, equines and marine mammals  with emphasis on Special, Operations military working dogs (MWDs) as well as Canine and human Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome Injury (C-PTSI) auditory processing pathologies and diagnosing auditory processing disorders. In addition, I am researching auditory processing mechanisms in canines and beluga whales in the ultrasonic bands and in noise. This research entails using auditory evoked potentials and event-related potentials and imaging techniques to determine the neural pathways for signal-in-noise processing in these animals. Lastly, the research entails determining the effects of noise on animals and mitigation measures for captive habitat settings, specifically kennel noise mitigation and military canine hearing protection devices and hearing aids for canines.
