In my research, I investigate the computational mechanisms underlying neural encoding of sound location in normal and hearing-impaired listeners. I use an interdisciplinary approach combining cognitive neuroscience, computational modeling and clinical audiology: I develop neurobiological-inspired deep neural network models of processing of sound location in subcortical auditory structures and the auditory cortex. Building on the resulting insights, I aim to optimize signal processing algorithms for cochlear implants to enhance neural spatial auditory processing in cochlear implant users.
