Dr. Mackersie’s primary research interests include the perceptual consequences of hearing loss and hearing amplification. Her research foci include auditory and non-auditory factors underlying individual differences in speech perception & benefit from amplification, physiological indices of hearing-related stress, and user self-adjustment of hearing amplification.
