Biography

Since 1st October 2015, I have been Director of the Scottish Section of the MRC/CSO Institute of Hearing Research (IHR) in Glasgow. I lead the institute's research programme in the areas of hearing disability and hearing aids, with projects seeking to understand real-life auditory behaviour, improve methods of assessing disability and intervention benefit, and propose innovative solutions for hearing problems.

Prior to joining IHR, I worked for 20+ years in research in the Danish hearing-aid industry, including from 2000-2013 as Director of Oticon's Eriksholm Research Centre. Here I directed numerous research projects which have impacted the wider field of hearing-aid R&D.
