Audiology and Hearing Rehabilitation

Maaike Van Eeckhoutte

On January 6th, Maaike Van Eeckhoutte started as a postdoc in Audiology and Hearing Rehabilitation. It is a new joint position in the Hearing Systems section at the Department of Health Technology at DTU and in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery & Audiology at Rigshospitalet. A major goal is to facilitate the translation of research between the technical university and the clinic. The combination of technical and clinical aspects was exactly what attracted her and made her decide to move to Denmark. While having a background in clinical audiology, she has always had a strong interest in translating fundamental sciences into applications for clinical practice. Previously, she was conducting research in audiology and neuroscience during her time as a PhD student at the KU Leuven in Belgium, and translational research at the National Centre for Audiology in Canada, where she did her first postdoc. With this shared position, she sees many possibilities to set up new exciting research focused on helping the patient.
