Dr. Gerald Popelka

Gerald Popelka, PhD

Gerald Popelka Prior earned a masters degree in audiology from Kent State University and has a PhD degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison with an emphasis in neuroscience, and a two year post doctoral research fellowship in otolaryngology from UCLA. He was a faculty member for 24 years at Washington University in St. Louis with appointments in the Arts and Sciences and the Medical School and was the Head of Audiology at Central Institute for the Deaf, an internationally-recognized institution. He joined the faculty at Stanford in 2004 and became Chief of Audiology in 2005.

His research has been funded continuously with external grants primarily from the National Institutes of Health. He is a co-inventor of the world's first all digital hearing aid that forms the basis of all current programmable and digital hearing aids sold worldwide. He has over 125 publications and continues to incorporate new and leading-edge technology into his research, always cognizant of its potential for clinical applications.
