Biography

Jennifer Gonzalez, Au.D., Ph.D., CCC-A is a Clinical Assistant Professor in Audiology at Arizona State University and a consulting adjunct professor in Salus University's International Au.D. Bridge Program, instructing courses related to central auditory processing disorder, tinnitus, the vestibular and balance system, and basic audiologic assessment. Her research and clinical interests focus on central auditory processing disorders, advanced vestibular diagnostics and rehabilitation, and neurodiagnostic auditory evoked responses, including auditory brainstem response, middle latency response, and cortical auditory evoked potentials. Among recent projects, her research paper titled The Onset-Offset N1-P2 Auditory Evoked Response in Individuals with High-Frequency Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Responses to Broadband Noise (AJA, in press) introduces a different approach to measuring cortical auditory evoked potentials that can be used to investigate central auditory nervous system function in individuals with moderate high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss. In her spare time, she enjoys playing catch with her two young sons, reading, hiking, photography, and playing the ukulele.
