About us

Welcome to the Chair of Sensory Neuroengineering. Our research group works on the biophysics of hearing and neuroscience, at the interface of science, technology and medicine. We use ideas from theoretical physics, mathematics, and computer science in combination with ear and brain imaging to investigate principles of human auditory signal detection and processing. Together with clinical collaborators we also investigate auditory and language impairments. We aim to apply our findings in novel bio-inspired technology as well as in novel technology diagnosing and rehabilitating hearing and communication impairments.

We are part of the Department Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering (AIBE) at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). We recently moved from the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, and part of the group still resides there.
