Associate Professor

Primary fields of research

I reject the influence of Cartesian dualism on academia and have a broad interest in scientific studies of hearing and spoken language perception. I have published work on cochlear implants, auditory-cortical potentials, phonemic restoration and the role of attentional mechanisms that underpin our perception of speech. Currently I am investigating the role of attention in the perception of the VOT contrast and am also doing translational work on the lateralized readiness potential (bereitschaftspotential) as a clinical tool to resolve functional hearing loss. I do most of my data collection at the Linguistics Laboratory labspace at KU, building 25.

Motivation for my work comes from my background as an Audiologist, and it's also informed by my own unilateral hearing loss.

As an educator I'm affiliated with the combined Speech Pathology and Audiology program (audiologopædi) at the University of Copenhagen. In this role I'm heavily involved in convening the audiology side of things.
