HiJee Kang


HiJee Kang's main research interest lies in auditory memory and perceptual learning, one of the key factors for efficient auditory scene analysis. She is specialised in designing and conducting human psychoacoustic experiments and data analysis. She has explored the topic in multiple prestigious international laboratories specialised in hearing research (ENS Paris with Dr. Pressnitzer; MRC IHR with Dr. Amitay; Goldsmiths, University of London with Dr. Williamson and Dr. Stewart), using various methods such as human psychophysics covering normal hearing population as well as cochlear implant patients, EEG, and pupillometry. Her recent research centres on analysing neurophysiological data acquired from rodents for more in-depth understanding of changes in neuronal activities following the memory process. Her current research project in the lab is funded by Fyssen post-doc scholarship.
