Shuman He Curriculum Vitae

Personal Statement

I finished my M.D. training in Clinical Medicine at Shandong University, China and my PhD training in Speech and Hearing Sciences, specializing in auditory electrophysiology, at The University of Iowa. After I finished my doctoral training, I worked as a postdoctoral research associate at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for two years. Before I moved to Boys Town National Research Hospital, I worked as an assistant professor at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for four years. I have been investigating the auditory processing in cochlear implant and auditory brainstem implant users using electrophysiological measures of cortical auditory evoked potentials, auditory brainstem responses, and compound action potentials for the last fifteen years. My current research directions include evaluating aging effects on neural encoding and auditory perception, investigating auditory processing in children with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder, and exploring temporal and spectral resolution in patients with auditory brainstem implants.
