Jennifer J. Lentz, PhD
Jennifer J. Lentz received a BS in biomedical engineering in 1993 from the University of Iowa and an MS (1996) and PhD (1998) from the University of Pennsylvania in bioengineering. Her dissertation research involved applying psychoacoustic and modeling techniques to normal auditory perception. She then completed her postdoctoral training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where she evaluated auditory perception in listeners with sensorineural hearing loss. In 2002, she began at Indiana University where she is now a Professor and the department chair. She has published numerous articles on the perceptual consequences of sensorineural hearing loss and is currently an editor for the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research and an associate editor for the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. In 2014, the Acoustical Society of America elected her to fellow of the society "for contributions on hearing loss and the perception of complex sound."
