Brett A. Martin appointed to the Graduate Center

Brett A. Martin

Associate Professor, Ph.D. Program in Speech and Hearing Sciences

Brett Martin previously taught at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. A prolific researcher, she has received nearly $1 million in grant funding, including some $700,000 from the National Institute of Health, for her work examining the speech perception capacity of children with hearing loss. Martin’s research focuses on electrophysiological indices of auditory perceptual processing in normal-hearing and hearing-impaired individuals. She is an expert in cortical evoked potentials—an area in which she has collaborated with Graduate Center Professor Valerie L. Shafer. Martin has published extensively in a number of well-regarded journals in her field, including Ear and Hearing and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and has received a number of awards for her publications. She also has presented at many national and international conferences and has reviewed grant applications for the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Martin earned a B.S. in 1984 and in 1985 an M.A. in audiology and hearing impairment, both from Northwestern University. She received her Ph.D. in speech and hearing sciences from The Graduate Center in 1997. In addition to Montclair, she also has taught at Hofstra University, and at Seton Hall University.
