Researchers Share Knowledge at Conferences in Colombia, Scotland and Sweden
Minneapolis, Feb. 16, 2010 – The Starkey Hearing Research Center, a division of Starkey Laboratories, Inc., is proud to announce that its staff has been invited to speak at a number of prestigious conferences around the world this spring. In order of timing:
- Karrie Recker, Au.D., will present on three different hearing aid-related topics including Acceptable Noise Level, Hearing Aids and Cell Phones, and High-Frequency Real-Ear Measurements at the VII National Convention of Audiology & EXPO 2010 in Bogota, Columbia Feb. 17-20. The event is organized by the Colombian Association of Audiology.
- Sridhar Kalluri, Ph.D., will present “Binaural function and its benefits for wearers of hearing aids” to the Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals in Edinburgh, Scotland on Feb. 26.
- Brent Edwards, Ph.D., will present “Binaural Psychoacoustic Considerations for Hearing Aid Processing” as the opening keynote address for the Swedish Association for Technical Audiology in Stockholm, Sweden on March 17.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to share our research and insights with audiology communities around the world,” said Dr. Edwards. “It is an honor to be seen as a leader in hearing research, and we look forward to the opportunity to share our knowledge.”
The Starkey Hearing Research Center is located in Berkeley, Calif., and is staffed by an interdisciplinary group of engineers and scientists that pursue research primarily in auditory perceptual science and signal processing technology. The research is then translated into real-world technologies that offer real benefit to hearing aid wearers.
