Viji is a PhD candidate working on electrophysiological (objective) measures for hearing aid outcome evaluation. Her doctoral thesis is evaluating a developed test protocol using speech-evoked envelope following responses as an objective outcome measure. Currently, she is evaluating this protocol in adults with normal hearing and in adults with hearing loss and who wear hearing aids. This project is under the supervision of Dr. Susan Scollie (Child Amplification Laboratory) and Dr. David Purcell (Speech, Auditory Feedback and Evoked Responses lab).
Viji is an audiologist by training and prior to her PhD, she worked in the Royal Hospital of Sick Children in Scotland as a paediatric audiologist for over a year and a half. Viji completed by clinical training in the University of Southampton, England (MSc) and in the University of Mysore, India (BSc).
