Areas of Expertise

  • Biomarkers of hearing loss

Jason received his Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree from the Northeast Ohio Au.D. Constortium in 2013. He then went on to obtain certification in neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring where he spent time monitoring the integrity of the central and peripheral nervous systems of patients during neurologic procedures. Currently, Jason is a Research Scientist at OSU in the Department of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery where he utilizes various electrophysiologic techniques to understand the physiology underlying different forms of hearing loss. His research interests also include identifying biomarkers of hearing loss as well as how various surgical procedures of the inner ear affect hearing and the biomechanics of the cochlea.
