Travis M. Moore received his clinical doctorate degree in audiology (Au.D.) from the Vanderbilt School of Medicine where he trained to administer and interpret diagnostic tests of the auditory and vestibular systems. Dr. Moore practiced as an audiologist after graduation but returned to academia to pursue a degree in research. He earned his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt’s Graduate School, specializing in auditory neuroscience and psychoacoustics. After graduation, Dr. Moore worked as a tenure-track Assistant Professor at Samford University. He helped establish a new graduate program in audiology, creating eight graduate-level courses. His research interests include using virtual reality to explore auditory spatial processing and investigating the psychophysiological effects of hearing loss. Dr. Moore currently works as an Adjunct Professor at Montclair State University as well as owns and operates Rockredd Solutions, LCC: a company that maintains a subscription website that teaches the scientific principles driving clinical audiology (audiologysource.com).

Selected Publications

Dr. Moore's scholarly publications investigate the human auditory system from several angles. Most often, his work covers more "basic science" topics, such as cochlear mechanics, late cortical potentials, and the interaction of binaural spatial cues. As a trained audiologist, however, Dr. Moore is also interested in the big-picture, clinical implications of hearing loss. His related work addresses the psychophysiological and cognitive aspects of hearing impairment, including listening effort, listening-related mental fatigue and emotional processing of sound.
