Eddins, Ann, Ph.D., M.B.A., CCC-A


Dr. Ann Eddins earned a B.S. in Communication Disorders from Northwestern University, M.A. in Audiology from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Ph.D. in Auditory Physiology from SUNY University at Buffalo, an M.S. in Business Administration/Medical Management and an M.B.A. both from the University of Rochester, Simon School of Business. She started her academic career as a post-doctoral fellow in Neuroscience at the University of Florida followed by faculty positions in Audiology and Hearing Science at Indiana University and SUNY University at Buffalo. She subsequently served as the Director of Audiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in the Departments of Audiology and Otolaryngology and joined the University of South Florida in 2010. Dr. Eddins’ clinical and research interests have been aimed at understanding the neurophysiological bases of normal and impaired hearing. Her work has incorporated both human and animal models using a range of basic science and clinically applied techniques including single- and multi-neuron measures, evoked and event-related potential measures, neuroimaging and psychophysics. Her current research is focused on central auditory plasticity and identifying neurophysiological signatures in brainstem and cortical activity associated with aging, hearing loss, tinnitus, and rehabilitative intervention.  She also has expertise in small business development and a keen interest in how health care economics impacts clinical management decision making.
