My name is Teresa and I am a Biomedical engineering Master’s student at the University of Glasgow.
Since July, I have joined the Superman team at the Eriksholm research centre. Here, I’m working full time at my Master’s project focusing on investing eye behavior of hearing impaired adults listening to a natural conversation with background noise.
For the purpose of this research, we aim to explore how individuals might adapt their oculomotor behaviour to compensate for the difficulty of the listening scenario. Ultimately, our goal is to contribute to the optimization of algorithms that use eye movements to steer the beamforming of hearing aids to achieve task selection via eye input.
The project will be supervised by Martha Shiell, Sergi Rotger Griful and Johannes Zaar, and assisted by another master’s student, Simon With.
When I’m not working or studying, I enjoy spending time outside, exercise, cooking some Italian dishes and explore Copenhagen with my bike!
