Andrew J. Oxenham

Andrew J. Oxenham, PhD
Group Leader

Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota, and Visiting Scientist, Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT


Christoph Micheyl

Christophe Micheyl, PhD
Visiting Scientist

Projects include pitch perception in complex environments, and the functional anatomy of auditory scene analysis.

Xuedong Zhang

Xuedong Zhang, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow

I am interested in mathematically modeling acoustic psychophysics
and physiology, signal processing in cochlear implants and hearing aids,
and the neural coding of sound.

Andrea Simonson

Andrea Simonson, PhD, CCC-A
Research Scientist/Audiologist

Projects include perceptual consequences of cochlear non-linearity,
behavioral estimates of cochlear tuning, and using psychophysics to
study auditory neuropathy.


Alex Gutschalk

Alexander Gutschalk, MD
Postdoctoral Associate

I'm doing functional studies of the human auditory cortex using MEG and fMRI.


Lorraine Delhorne, M.S.
Research Scientist

Projects include devising behavioral measures of cochlear and central function in hearing-impaired listeners.
