Recently inducted into AIMBE “for significant engineering-driven advance in the structure-function-mechanism relations of auditory physiology, with emphasis on outer hair cells and cochlea”.

Research Interests

Auditory information processing; sensory biophysics; computer simulation; biomedical electronics; biomedical signal processing; environmental engineering.

Current Research

Dr. Mountain’s research centers around the experimental and theoretical studies of hearing function, including: cochlear biomechanics, otoacoustic emissions, auditory processing of complex sounds, and auditory evoked potentials. Professor Mountain also engages in studies designed to predict the impact of anthropogenic sound sources on marine mammals.
