Xin Luo joined the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University in the fall of 2008. Prior to this, he was a post-doc researcher in the Department of Auditory Implants and Perception at House Ear Institute. Dr. Luo’s current research focuses on speech perception of cochlear implant users in challenging listening conditions. Specifically, he is interested in enhancing cochlear implant users’ recognition of supra-segmental speech information, such as lexical tones and vocal emotions. His research involves the design and evaluation of speech processing techniques and electrical stimulation strategies that may better transmit pitch cues to cochlear implant users.
Professor Luo is a member of the Acoustical Society of America and the Association for Research in Otolaryngology.
