Dr. Boatman directs a cross-disciplinary program of research in auditory neuroscience. Her research focuses on understanding how the human brain perceives sounds in complex listening environments. Her laboratory conducts brain mapping studies that combine electrophysiology (intracranial, scalp), behavioral testing, signal processing, and computational modeling. Current studies supported by NIH and the Department of Defense focus on modeling spatial-temporal dynamics of high-frequency cortical auditory responses in normal and impaired listeners. Her laboratory provides NIH-supported research training for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees in neuroscience, audiology, biostatistics, and biomedical engineering.

Dr. Boatman received her doctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania and her clinical training at George Washington University. She completed post-doctoral research and clinical training at Johns Hopkins.

Patient Ratings & Comments

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to physician related questions on the national CG-CAHPS Medical Practice patient experience survey through Press Ganey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Comments are also gathered from our CG-CAHPS Medical Practice Survey through Press Ganey and displayed in their entirety. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
