    Brandon Paul - Postdoc
    I study how the human ear and brain work together to understand sounds in the environment. I am particularly interested in how this communication changes when the normal link from the ear to the brain is disrupted, and how to develop strategies and technologies that lead to better hearing assessment or enhancement under these circumstances. Primarily, I use electrophysiology, behavioral studies, and computational methods to meet these ends. I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Sunnybrook Research Institute, a part of the Evaluative Clinical Sciences Platform within the Department of Otolaryngology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Speech Therapy and Audiology at the University of Montreal, funded by a grant from the American Tinnitus Association. I hold a Ph.D. in Psychology from McMaster University, and a M.A. in Speech in Hearing Science and B.Mus. in Music Theory from The Ohio State University.
