Ben Williges

University Position
Research Associate


Dr Ben Williges is a Hearing Technology and Audiological Engineer. He is currently working on measuring cortical responses in adults with Cochlear implants (CIs), in order to develop objective measures to help understand sound transmission through the electrically stimulated auditory pathways in order to identify the cause of any frequency-specific deficits. Ben will be applying this knowledge to evaluate whether we can use objective measures to inform bilateral CI mapping for optimising binaural cues in people with two CIs. This will involve exploring measures for aligning channels and objectively testing the perception of inter-aural timing differences (ITDs). These approaches will use modelling predictions to guide interventions.
