Research Interests

I am a member of the Medical Physics Group at Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg. After finishing my Bachelor (Engineering Physics, B.Eng, 2014) and Master (Physics, M.Sc. 2016) studies here, I am now pursuing a PhD in the field of hearing systems technology. My main scientific interests are:

  • Hearing Acoustics and Acoustic Design of Hearing Systems
  • Signal Processing for Hearing Devices
  • Psychoacoustics and Perceptive Evaluation
  • Binaural Technology and Spatial Hearing
  • Ear-EEG and multi-sensor integration in hearing aids
