Viji EaswarViji Easwar, PhD, Viji Easwar, PhD, is a postdoctoral research fellow at the National Centre for Audiology. She is an audiologist and completed her PhD in Western University in 2014. Viji’s research interests include objective outcome measures of children with hearing loss who wear hearing aids and/or use cochlear implants. She is currently working with Drs. Susan Scollie and David Purcell on an objective aided test called NestAmp (Neural test for Amplification) that was developed during her PhD at Western University. This test aims to confirm access to speech sounds through hearing aids in young babies. Viji recently completed her postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Karen Gordon at the Hospital for Sick Children during which she evaluated development of binaural processing in children with two cochlear implants using electrophysiological measures.
