David R. Moore, PhD, investigates hearing in the context of human communication. His primary focus is on listening difficulties in children and their remediation. Current projects include resting brain activity in children with a variety of developmental learning disorders. A secondary focus is the development of hearing tests and interventions that can be provided through remote delivery, for example via smartphones. Currently, we are working towards the delivery of hearing health care to underserved populations.
