The Deep Hearing Lab is a research team at the University of Cambridge led by Dr Tobias Goehring.
Our research aims to help people with hearing difficulties.
Communication in noisy places is a major problem for people with hearing loss. We work on improving speech perception in noisy environments with hearing devices (cochlear implants, hearing aids and hearables). We combine techniques from engineering, audiology, neuroscience, psychology and deep learning to better understand the problem and to develop new methods for hearing devices and clinical applications. An important part of our work is the collaboration with people who use implants and devices to get their feedback and to evaluate our research.
We are part of the Cambridge Hearing Group and based at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit.
Our funding comes from the Medical Research Council, the Fondation pour l'Audition, the Evelyn Trust, Wellcome Trust and Newton Trust.
We need volunteers to take part in our studies. If you want to help, get in touch!
