James Lewis, PhD


Dr. Lewis's research interests include diagnosis of middle-ear pathology, cochlear processing in normal and impaired ears, and efferent control of cochlear sensititivity. Dr. Lewis joined the department in Fall 2015 and teaches courses covering audiologic assessment, auditory physiology and electrophysiology, and hearing conservation. 

Prior to his appointment at UTHSC, Dr. Lewis completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Boys Town National Research Hospital. At Boys Town, Dr. Lewis investigated techniques to non-invasively assay the impendance and efficiency of the middle ear, the effect of cochlear hearing loss on auditory brainstem responce latencies, and the perception of cochlear generated distortion products. During his tenure at Boys Town, Dr. Lewis was awarded an NIH F32 award.

Dr. Lewis earned his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa in Fall 2013. His dissertation was on the origin of the different-latency components of transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions.
