Associate Professor Holly Fryauf-Bertschy Teagle

2005 Doctor of Audiology University of Florida, Gainsville; 1985 Master of Audiology The University of Iowa, Iowa City


I am a clinical audiologist who has provided patient care and collaborated in clinical research related to cochlear implantation for many years.  Currently, I am an Associate Professor in Audiology at the University of Auckland where I lecture on hearing technologies, paediatric audiology, counseling and the impact of hearing loss over the lifespan.  I am also the Clinical Director of Audiology and Habilitation at The Hearing House in Auckland, which is the cochlear implant centre for the northern part of New Zealand.  My research interests include all aspects of cochlear implant recipient care with a focus on device efficacy and clinical management of special populations.
