Personal profile

Profile

Lindsey obtained her PhD from Ghent University (Belgium) in 2016. Her research was funded by the Institute for Neuroscience and was conducted in collaboration with the Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. The primary goal of her PhD was to better understand central auditory processing in cochlear implant users who wear a hearing aid in the non-implanted ear.  Besides research, Lindsey also has experience in teaching and clinical practice. Her clinical responsibilities involved the verification of the hearing status of newborns, intra-operative measures, and fitting of hearing devices.

Currently, Lindsey is working as a post-doctoral researcher at Macquarie University. Her research focuses on understanding the brain mechanisms of binaural hearing in normal hearing listeners, as well as in users of bilateral cochlear implants. To gain insight in these brain mechanisms, electrophysiological techniques are applied.
