Personal profile

Overview

My role as a senior lecturer combines research, teaching and administration duties. I am also a Director of Social Responsibility for School of Health Sciences. 

Biography

My fascination with research started when, as a postgraduate student at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland, I secured an Erasmus Socrates Studentship to study at the University of Cambridge. I conducted a research project under the supervision of Professor Brian Moore at the Department of Experimental Psychology. Soon after obtaining my MSc degree in Physics I started my PhD in Prof Moore's group. I completed my PhD in 2005 and was awarded Pauline Ashley Prize from Deafness Research UK. I used the prize to spend six months at the Evoked Response Laboratory of Professor Terry Picton at the University of Toronto, where I learned electrophysiological techniques for human auditory research. My independent research started in 2006, when I became a Lecturer at the University of Manchester (UoM) working 0.6 FTE at the UoM and 0.4 FTE at the Central Manchester Children’s University Hospital. In 2007 I took up a full-time Lecturer position at the UoM. I was on maternity leave in 2008/2009, and in 2013/2014, and in 2013 I was promoted to Senior Lecturer. My research falls within two core themes that can be classified as auditory neuroscience (fundamental research) and translational hearing science (applied research) funded by research grants from a variety of sources including the Medical Research Council  (MRC), the Wellcome Trust, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), charities and international industries, for example Cochlear, Advanced Bionics and Phonak.
