Huiwen is a postdoctoral fellow at the SMART Lab. She obtained her doctoral degree in experimental psychology from the University of Toronto in 2016, and her thesis focused on how age-related vocal changes and environmental demands affect speech communication. She is more broadly interested in how a person’s auditory world changes with age and hearing loss, and how these changes affect functioning and quality of life.
