Biography: 

Andrea Pittman is an associate professor in the College of Health Solutions. In the Pediatric Amplification Laboratory, the amplification needs of both children and adults with hearing loss are examined through traditional and novel paradigms. Two lines of research are currently underway. First, the team is interested to know if hearing loss delays or halts the development of word learning in children compared to their normally hearing peers. Second, the group is studying the relation between learning and signal quality in a variety of clinical populations and hearing devices (hearing aids, bone-anchored devices).

  • M.A. Audiology, San Diego State University 1992 
  • B.A. Communicative Disorders, Point Loma Nazarene University 1985 
Research Interests: 

Pediatric audiology, pediatric and adult amplification, digital signal processing, advanced hearing aid features, speech perception, lexical development and maintenance, cognitive resource management, auditory learning, and vocal biomarkers of the amplified auditory feedback loop.
