Ewan Macpherson hails from St. John’s, Newfoundland. He completed a B.Sc. in Engineering Physics (Queen’s) and an M.Sc. in Physics (Waterloo), during which he developed both a computational model of sound localization and a desire to study spatial hearing in real human listeners. His doctoral (Psychology, Wisconsin-Madison) and postdoctoral work (Kresge Hearing Research Institute, University of Michigan) involved studies of spatial hearing in undergraduates, cats, and cochlear implant users. He joined the faculty of the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the National Centre for Audiology at the University of Western Ontario in January 2009, where he continues to study spatial hearing in normal and hearing impaired listeners and the application of virtual auditory space techniques to audiological research.

  • Audio Research Group: Sept 1987-June 1990. (leisurely M.Sc!) Supervisor was John.
