Lina Reiss, Lab Director
Associate Professor of Otolaryngology-HNS and Biomedical Engineering
The Reiss Lab studies auditory perception and how this is affected by hearing loss, with a focus on binaural fusion and spectral integration. We also study how auditory nerve function changes over time after cochlear implantation. We study these questions in both humans and animal models.
Dr. Reiss has also been involved for over 25 years with HI-ARO (hearing-impaired Association for Research in Otolaryngology), a mentoring network for scientists, engineers, and clinicians with hearing loss in the field of hearing research.
More recently, she helped found BIPOC-CSD, a mentoring network for researchers and clinicians in the hearing field who identify as a person of color.
