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.

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.

Henri Pöntynen

 henri.poentynen@uni-oldenburg.de

+49 441 798 - 3291

 W30-1-108

Henri has a doctoral degree in Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing from Aalto University, Finland. His current research aims to develop individualized binaural algorithms for improving the directional hearing abilities of hearing-impaired listeners.

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.

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 and stroke survivors 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.

Rebecca Felsheim

 rebecca.felsheim@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3308

 W30-3-320

Rebecca is a Ph.D. student with a background in Biomedical Engineering and Advanced Signal Processing and Communications Engineering. She is developing an individualizable algorithm to improve binaural hearing for Cochlear Implant users.
