Adriana Zekveld (PhD) performs the 4-year personal VENI project: “The eye as measure of listening effort”. This study is performed at the Section Audiology, Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and EMGO Institute at the VU University medical centre in Amsterdam. The study focuses on the validation of pupillometric research to study processing load during listening.
Additionally, Adriana is part-time employed by the Linnaeus centre HEAD. HEAD stands for HEaring And Deafness; Linnaeus Centre HEAD is part of the Swedish Institute for Disability Research, which builds on a collaboration between the Swedish universities of Linköping and Örebro. For this “Mismatch in the Brain” study, she performs both behavioral and fMRI research on the influence of speech-to-noise ratio and informative cues on speech intelligibility and brain activation.
This study is part of a collaboration between HEAD and the Section Audiology, Dept. of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery & the EMGO+ Institute at the VU University medical center Amsterdam.
Adriana is co-supervisor of the PhD student Lisa Kilman.
