Andrew J. Oxenham is a professor in the Departments of Psychology and Otolaryngology at the University of Minnesota, where he directs the Auditory Perception and Cognition Lab. Before coming to Minnesota in 2006, he was a Principal Research Scientist at MIT’s Research Laboratory of Electronics. His research interests include auditory and speech perception in normal, impaired and electric hearing. He has published over 90 scientific journal articles and 20 book chapters in areas ranging from the perceptual correlates of cochlear amplification and compression, through pitch perception, to neural correlates of auditory awareness. He has served as associate editor for some of the field’s leading journals, including the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. His research has enjoyed continuous support from the National Institutes of Health since 1998.
