Research Overview

I am a pediatric auditory neuroscientist. I am interested in the effect of everyday hearing technology (e.g. hearing aids, earbuds with remote microphone apps) on language, cognition, academic ability and cortical acclimatisation in children with normal hearing and hearing impairment. I use neuroimaging techniques, EEG and MRI, to understand the underlying mechanisms of speech and non-speech listening skills in hearing impairment and developmental disorders. I am also exploring how to bring gamification and virtual reality to paediatric hearing and listening research.

I am happy to discuss potential PhD projects.
