Mathias Dietz is a trained physicist and keeps studying how sound input to the left and right ear interacts in the brain. A main goal is to account for human perception in both normal and impaired hearing, using physiologically plausible computer simulations. We use our knowledge from our basic research for improving signal processing and audiologic fitting of cochlear implants, and – in the future – hopefully also hearing aids.

Postdoctoral Researchers

Dr. Hongmei Hu

hongmei.hu@uni-oldenburg.de

+49 441 798 - 3308

 W30-3-320

Hongmei is interested in demystifying the cochlear implantee's auditory system by combining subjective perceptional  and electroencephalogram (EEG)  measurements. Her goal is to apply advanced signal processing and fitting techniques to improve the performance of cochlear implant users.

Dr. Jörg Encke

+49 441 798 - 3588

 W30-1-107

Jörg is a postdoc with a background in engineering physics and biomedical engineering. By combining biophysical and functional modeling with psychoacoustics, he is interest in untangling the chain that connects the physical location of a sound source to its neuronal representation in the brain all the way to perception.

Sabrina Pieper

 sabrina.pieper@uni-oldenburg.de

+49 441 798 - 3308

 W30-3-320

Sabrina is currently finishing her PhD thesis and has a MSc in Hearing Technology and Audiology. She is interested in cochlear implants and investigating the hearing with psychoacoustic methods. Both aspects are combined in her actual research of bimodal CI users.

Ph.D. Students

Jonas Klug

jonas.klug@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3291

 W30-1-108

Jonas is a Ph.D. student with a MSc in Hearing Technology & Audiology. He is working on a physiologically plausible computational model of binaural perception. While the current focus is on normal hearing, he is going to model impaired hearing as the next step.

Sven Herrmann

 sven.herrmann@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3291

 W30-1-108

Sven is a Ph.D. student with a MSc in Hearing Technology & Audiology. He is developing a model-based diagnostic procedure to investigate the relationship between hearing disorders and their physiological pathologies.

Anna Dietze

 anna.dietze@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3588

 W30-1-107

Anna is a Ph.D. student with a MSc in Neuroscience. She is conducting psychoacoustic measurements with hearing-impaired listeners to shed light on their individual neural deficits on the auditory pathway by the means of model-based diagnostics.

Bernhard Eurich

 bernhard.eurich@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3588

 W30-1-107

Bernhard is a Ph.D. student with a MSc in Hearing Technology & Audiology. He is developing an effective computational model of the binaural processing. In order to be applicable in various auditory models and hearing instrument algorithms, he designs this model to be computationally efficient and at the same time in tune with physiology.
