My current research interests are focused on hearing health care in underserved communities. We are exploring how physical health, emotional well-being, and cognition are connected with hearing loss. Through these explorations we hope to help improve the quality of life for people who suffer from hearing loss but have no resources to help address the effects of hearing loss.
