Keri O. Bennett, Au.D., CCC-A

  • Instructor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine


Dr. Bennett completed her B.S. in communicative disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001 and went on to graduate from the University of Washington in 2006 as a doctor in audiology. In 2011, she completed a certificate in clinical and translational human (research) investigations from the Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Bennett joined the department in 2009 and specializes in diagnostic audiology for both pediatrics and adults, ototoxicity, and working with adult and pediatric hearing aid patients. Additionally, she holds an appointment at the Portland VA National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research and has been conducting hearing research since 2007. Her areas of auditory research include ototoxicity, late auditory cortical potentials, psychoacoustics, auditory training and tinnitus management. She has a strong interest in the diagnoses, monitoring and prevention of ototoxic hearing loss and tinnitus in patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments. Currently, Dr. Bennett conducts research on cisplatin induced ototoxicity in cancer patients in the lab of Drs. Marilyn Dille and Dawn Konrad-Martin.
