Anahita received her BSc in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology at the University of Mumbai. She completed her MSc in Audiological Science at University College London and her PhD in Auditory Neuroscience at University College London, UK in 2015. She did her postdoctoral training at the University of Minnesota. In 2019, after completing her training, she continued at the University of Minnesota as a research associate. Her research focuses on the perception and neural representation of pitch and its various properties in normal-hearing listeners as well as understanding the limitations of pitch perception in cochlear implants (CI). She uses behavioral and neurophysiological measures (EEG and fMRI) to probe the neural encoding of pitch, context effects, and the effects of hearing loss in the auditory system.

Research Interests

Our research uses behavior, EEG and fMRI to investigate questions related to pitch perception, perceptual bias, context effects and the effects of hearing loss on auditory perception.
