Hello! My name is Michael, and I am a Research Scientist/Engineer here in the SMART Lab. I love getting my hands on and playing with new technology. I am also fascinated by the way our mind and body work. Here in the SMART Lab, I get to bring these two passions together. We are using “brain-sensing” technology to see how the brain reacts to different listening conditions. Our goal is to find out why the brain responds the way it does. Ultimately, we want to use our new-found knowledge to develop the next generation of hearing aids!
