Dr. Gavin has been a cochlear implant researcher for more than twenty years. Over this time, he has pursued many research interests, including single- and multi-channel psychophysical studies, speech perception (English and other languages), sound source localization, music perception, and auditory training. He has benefited greatly from training and collaborative opportunities while working at the House Ear Institute and at UCLA, and have in turn trained many students and visiting researchers, including physicians, post-docs and students from China, the Netherlands, and France. Most recently, Dr. Gavin’s research has been focused on how acoustic and electric stimulation patterns are combined in acoustic and electric hearing in terms of spatial, speech and music perception.
