Marc Brennan

Marc Brennan, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Dr. Brennan graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with his bachelor's and master's in communicative disorders, followed by his Ph.D. at the University of Washington. He completed both his clinical fellowship and post-doctoral fellowships at Boys Town National Research Hospital. Research interests involve examining the relationship between high-frequency amplification and the perception of speech, and between compression amplification and the perception of temporal and spectral cues.

Emma Brandt, B.A.

Emma Brandt graduated from the University of Kansas with her bachelor's in speech, language and hearing. She is in her third year of the Clinical Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) program at Nebraska. Her research has examined the influence of hearing aid amplification on the ability of users to perceive the location of a sound. She is also interested in rural audiology and hopes that her career can include outreach to under-served communities. In her free time, Emma enjoys cross-stitching, snuggling with her fiancé's cat, and trying to keep her plants alive. She is hoping to pursue her Ph.D. after completion of her Au.D.

Sarah Garvey

Sarah Garvey, B.S.

Sarah Garvey graduated from the University of Rhode Island with her bachelor's in communicative disorders. She is in her second year of the Clinical Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) program at Nebraska. Sarah currently works in the AMPLab as a graduate research assistant. Her research examines the effect of amplification on access to spectral cues.

Angela Huebert
