Nour Alsabbagh

Ph.D. student

Nour started the Ph.D. program at Iowa in Fall 2022. She completed her Speech and Hearing Sciences undergraduate degree at the University of Jordan, Jordan. Then, she received the Korean government scholarship, by which she completed her master’s degree in Audiology at Hallym University in South Korea. Nour worked as a research assistant at Hallym University Medical Center before joining the Ph.D. program.

Nour is part of the Human Auditory Neuroscience Group, where she works with her mentor, Dr. Inyong Choi. Her research interest focuses on understanding the neurophysiological mechanisms of auditory perception, particularly in subjects with auditory perceptual deficits (tinnitus, hearing loss, central auditory processing disorders). She is also interested in using a multidisciplinary approach in her research, including electroencephalography, non-invasive brain stimulation, and psychophysical measures.

Away from academics, she likes to exercise, do needlework, hang out with her friends, and watch tv shows.
