Samira Anderson is an Assistant Professor of Hearing and Speech Sciences at the University of Maryland. After practicing as a clinical audiologist for 26 years, she decided to pursue research to better understand the hearing difficulties experienced by her patients and obtained her Ph.D. in December of 2012. Samira's research focuses on the effects of aging and hearing loss on central auditory processing and neuroplasticity, using electrophysiology as her primary assessment tool. She is currently using speech-evoked cortical potentials and electrically-evoked auditory brainstem responses in studies that aim to maximize cochlear implant benefits using objective measures of neural responses.
