Biography

As an audiologist, my research mainly focuses on studying auditory processing in human brain. I use various neurophysiological (EEG, MEG) methods to study auditory and auditory-visual processing in brain.

My doctoral research at Macquarie University, Sydney investigated the maturation of auditory and visual event-related potentials across adolescence. My postdoctoral research included studying auditory processing using MEG methods in typically developing preschoolers and children & adolescents with autism.

Interdisciplinary research with colleagues nationally and overseas has looked into letter-sound integration using EEG based methods in children with dyslexia, investigating the effects of meditation on brain processing and studying face-perception using novel EEG methods.
