Lori Holt has been elected a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) for improving understanding of neural processing and perception of complex auditory phenomena over her research career.

Holt is a professor with joint appointments in psychology and the neuroscience institute in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, a member of the Neuroscience Institute and co-director of the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition. Her research examines the perceptual, cognitive and neurobiological basis of how we listen. She said she is honored to be an ASA Fellow.

"The Acoustical Society of America played an influential role in my early career. I am thankful for their support and honored to be recognized as a fellow," Holt said.

Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, the director of the Neuroscience Institute, said ASA fellowship is a recognition of the quality of Holt’s research.

"Lori has been a significant contributor to the auditory neuroscience community," Shinn-Cunningham said. "I am pleased that her excellent work has been recognized on this level."

ASA’s mission is to generate, disseminate, and promote the knowledge and practical applications of acoustics.
