Zekveld currently focuses on the application of pupillometry to assess listening effort during speech perception tasks. She is co-applicant of the ZonMW project REAL-HEARING and main applicant (PI) of the associated HANSA project that assess the relationship between hearing loss and physiological measures of listening effort and stress in laboratory and real-world (ambulatory) conditions. She was co-PI of the recently finished Marie Curie ITN EC project (HEAR-ECO) that aimed to develop and assess ecologically valid conditions for the evaluation of hearing-aid benefit using physiological measures including pupillometry.
