Reception hours: By appointment
Dr. Karawani is a researcher and clinical audiologist and speech pathologist. She finished her PhD in auditory training in older adults with and without age-related hearing loss. Her post doc she finished at the University of Maryland, USA, in Neuroscience. She joined the faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2018.
Dr. Karawani's AudioNeuro lab investigates brain plasticity and auditory processing across the life span using perceptual, cognitive and electrophysiological measures. She is interested in neuroplasticity following altered sensory experience induced by auditory training, hearing rehabilitation and the experience of bilingualism.
