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 - 3900

 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

 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.

Ph.D. Students

Jonas Klug

jonas.klug@uni-oldenburg.de

 +49 441 798 - 3291

 W30-1-108

Jonas is a Ph.D. student with an 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
