Corbin earned her AuD from Arizona State University before beginning the PhD program under the primary mentorship of Dr. Lori Leibold.  Corbin is particularly interested in how unilateral hearing loss affects children's development of the ability to hear in complex acoustic environments.

This academic year, Corbin has enjoyed co-teaching the undergraduate Introduction to Audiology course with Dr. Jack Roush, preparing a manuscript for submission to Ear and Hearing, developing her pre-dissertation project, and seeing patients and supervising AuD students in the UNC Hospitals ENT clinic.

Corbin is a previous recipient of an Audiology/Hearing Science Research Travel Award (ARTA) to attend the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention (2014) and a Graduate Student Mentored Research Poster Travel Award from the American Auditory Society/NIDCD (2014), as well as a former LEND Fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital (2012-2013) and trainee under Arizona State University’s U.S. Dept of Education Grant to Train Pediatric Audiologists (2009-2013)
