Associate Professor, Otolaryngology

We use anatomical and physiological techniques to study synaptic transmission in the cochlea and brain stem in the context of auditory sensory processing and noise-induced hearing loss. Projects include development of therapies to prevent excitotoxicity by antagonizing calcium-permeable AMPA-type glutamate receptors.
