Cognitive Listening: Investigating speech perception in noise within a cognitive framework (funded by the Leverhulme Trust).
I am interested in isolating the role of informational interference (content of distracting speech) in speech perception from lower-level energetic (e.g. noise) and informational masking (e.g. sound source allocation and speaker characteristics). Additionally, I aim to identify individual differences in informational interference control, and how informational interference interacts with energetic masking.
