Research: I use electrophysiological methods (M/EEG, direct hearing nerve recordings via cochlear implants) to investigate attention, especially in challenging listening situations (“cocktail party” situations). The results have implications for improved speech rehabilitation in cochlear implant users and real-time adaptation of the implant to different listening situations. Furthermore, I work on tonotopic modeling and the reconstruction of sounds based on neural data (MEG).
