I’m a researcher within the field of Cognitive Hearing Science.
I’m the project manager of the ZonMW project REAL-HEARING (Real-life measurement of the influence of hearing loss and listening effort on stress systems). In this project, 2 PhD students will assess the link between lab-based physiological measures of listening effort and ambulatory acquired parameters of stress in daily life. I also manage the Marie-Slodowska Curie H2020 ITN EID project “HEAR-ECO” in which 6 Early Stage Researchers work on the development of ecological test conditions and measures for the evaluation of hearing aid benefit. These measures include pupillometry, measurement of the pupil size, as index of listening effort. HEAR-ECO is a collaboration between the Section Ear & Hearing, Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery of the VUmc, Oticon A/S, the University of Nottingham, and the Liverpool John Moores University.
