Adam is a Research Fellow in Hearing Sciences and works on the "BEARS" project to develop outcome measures suitable for young people with hearing loss. Adam completed his BA in Psychology and Business Education at Nottingham Trent University in 2010 before completing an MRes in Psychology at the University of York in 2012. In 2016, Adam completed a PhD in experimental psychology at the University of Surrey. Adam's PhD examined how visual stimuli can influence cognition as well as how sub-optimal research practices and publication bias can skew a field of research.
In 2015 Adam began working at the Institute of Hearing Research, exploring Single-Sided-Deafness, before leaving to teach statistics and research design at Nottingham Trent University in 2017. Adam returned to Hearing Sciences in 2021 to develop outcome measures for young people on the NIHR funded "Both EARS (BEARS)" project.
Between 2012 and 2015, I taught on undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Psychology department at the University of Surrey. I specialised in applied statistics and research design.
Between 2017 and 2021, I worked as a Maths and Statistics Tutor at Nottingham Trent University, specialising in applied statistics and research design. In this role I provided one-to-one support, practical workshops, lectures and in-sessional support on existing courses.
Previously, my research focussed on interventions for people with single-sided-deafness (SSD). People with SSD often have difficulty with understanding speech in noise and also with spatial hearing.… read more

Previously, my research focussed on interventions for people with single-sided-deafness (SSD). People with SSD often have difficulty with understanding speech in noise and also with spatial hearing. Working in an anechoic chamber laboratory I conducted research that assessed the effectiveness of Contra-lateral Routing of Signal (CROS) devices and Cochlear Implants in resolving these difficulties associated with SSD.
Currently, my research develops outcome measures for a multi-centre clinical trial. Using quantitative and qualitative methods, these measures assess health related quality of life in children and young people with hearing loss.
