Research Interests

My research interests focus on the prevention of noise-induced hearing loss across the lifespan, with a focus on recreational noise exposure. Currently, my research examines music and the potential risk for music-induced hearing disorders. Within that topic, I explore the use of Health Behavior Models to analyze knowledge, attitudes and behaviors about hearing loss and amplified music. Other research interests include examining the relationships between sociodemographic factors and health behaviors, with a focus on audiologic treatment, as well as clinical outcomes of amplification.
