Julia Campbell, Ph.D, Au.D, CCC-A, F-AAA

Julia Campbell received an Au.D in 2009 from the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder. In 2015, she received the combined triple Ph.D in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, Behavioral Neuroscience, and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Texas at Austin, and affiliated with the Institute for Neuroscience.  Julia uses electrophysiology and source localization methods to better understand cortical network plasticity in typical and atypical sensory function.  She has published research in PLoS ONE, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Journal of the American Academy of Audiology, and Clinical Neurophysiology, among others. 


Graduate Research Assistant

Connor Bean, B.A.

Connor Bean graduated from the University of Washington with her bachelor’s in Speech and Hearing Sciences. She is currently a second year Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) student at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research interests include the development of hearing in infancy and childhood, as well as cross-modal reorganization in individuals with hearing loss.


Graduate Research Assistant

Alison LaBrec, B.A.

Alison LaBrec completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. She is currently pursuing her Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) at the University of Texas. Her research interests include examining how the brain processes sound, especially in the pediatric and aging population.


Alumni Research Assistants

Megan Nations, B.A.

Megan Nations graduated from the department of Communication Sciences and Disorders: Audiology.  Her current research includes nonnative speech perception and working memory in noise.  Megan is interested in studying hearing loss prevention and cochlear pathology by use of ototoxic drugs, genetic resistance to hearing impairment, sensory cell regeneration, and neural processing of speech perception.  She is currently studying abroad in Spain.
