Sriram is a hearing scientist and an audiologist. His education, research, and teaching experience span four countries. Before joining NAL, Sriram was an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison, USA, for 4+ years. Sriram’s research focuses on understanding how the human brain talks back to the ear through neural networks called efferents. He uses non-invasive tools such as otoacoustic emissions (OAEs; sounds generated by ears) and electroencephalography (EEG; brain waves) to measure ear and brain activity, respectively. His work also involves developing audiological diagnostic tools to detect hearing loss early. He has over five years of teaching undergraduate and graduate students on topics related to hearing science. Sriram has adopted and successfully implemented blended teaching approaches. His work is published in major hearing science journals, and Sriram has consistently secured intra- and extra-mural grants to support his research. Personally, Sriram likes to hike, camp, and ride his motorcycle.
