Dr. Brown completed a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Western Washington University in 1981 and a Master of Arts in Audiology from Western Washington University in 1984, and then went on to earn his Doctor of Philosophy in Auditory Neuroscience from University of Calgary in 1996.
