Jennifer J. Lentz, PhD, holds a BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Iowa and an MS and PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania. Her dissertation research involved applying psychoacoustic and modeling techniques to auditory perception in listeners with normal hearing. She then completed her postdoctoral training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where she evaluated auditory perception in listeners with sensorineural hearing loss. She is now a professor at Indiana University and has taught psychoacoustics to audiology students for more than 20 years. During her time at IU, she has continued to research the perceptual consequences of sensorineural hearing loss. She has served as the department chair and as an associate editor for the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and Frontiers in Psychology. 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.”
