Personal profile


I am interested in how prolonged noise exposure affects hearing abilities in humans and how we might be able to improve methods for detecting subtle signs of hearing loss. In particular, I am interested in how professional musicians might differ to the rest of the population in their hearing abilities, and what their attitudes are towards the use of hearing protection. I also have a background in investigating how the brain processes different sensory events (i.e. vision, touch and hearing) to create a coherent percept and to effectively coordinate behaviour, and how this might be altered across the lifespan and in clinical populations.
