Guangwei Zhou's research focuses on evoked potential and vestibular studies. Currently, he is studying hearing losses attributable to inner-ear anomalies, such as enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) and semicircular canal dehiscence (SCD). He is also investigating the effects of cochlear implant(s) on vestibular/balance function in children. His study on correlation of hearing loss and vestibular deficits in children with congenital/genetic hearing loss is ongoing. Dr. Zhou's previous research focused on Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) testing and its clinical applications, especially in diagnosing Ménière's disease and superior canal dehiscence.
About Guangwei Zhou
Guangwei Zhou received his Master of Science in 2000 and Doctor of Science in Audiology in 2003 from Sargent College at Boston University. He completed his Audiology Clinical Fellowship at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in 1999-2000. He also has a medical degree from Beijing Medical University. His medical trainings include residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Third Hospital of Beijing Medical University in 1990-1994 and post-doctoral research fellowship in the Department of Otology and Laryngology at Harvard Medical School in 1995-1996.
