Assmann, Peter F.
Professor Peter F. Assmann "is one of the leading researchers in the area of speech perception in adverse listening conditions and the acoustics of speech development in children." Recently his research has been focused on the perceptual strategies used by listeners to recognize speech. This includes the development of a database of speech recordings of children between five and 18 years old in order to study the biological and social influences on speech acoustics. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (elected 2012). He also serves as the Principal Investigator at the Speech Perception Laboratory.

Adult listeners were presented with /hVd/ syllables spoken by boys and girls ranging from 5 to 18 years of age. Half of the listeners were informed of the sex of the speaker; the other half were not. Results indicate that ...
Perceiving Foreign-Accented Speech with Decreased Spectral Resolution in Single- and Multiple-Talker Conditions To determine the effect of reduced spectral resolution on the intelligibility of foreign-accented speech, vocoder-processed sentences from native and Mandarin-accented English talkers were presented to listeners in single- ...
Voice Gender and the Segregation of Competing Talkers: Perceptual Learning in Cochlear Implant Simulations Two experiments explored the role of differences in voice gender in the recognition of speech masked by a competing talker in cochlear implant simulations. Experiment 1 confirmed that listeners with normal hearing receive ...
