Biography

I am a Senior Research Fellow at the UoN Hearing Sciences - Scottish Section, based at the Royal Infirmary in Glasgow. My fellowship is funded by the Medical Research Foundation investigating social and emotional well-being measurement and outcomes for people with hearing loss.

I graduated from the University of Glasgow with an undergraduate MA in Psychology and an MSc in Brain Imaging Methods. Following this I worked as a Research Assistant at the MRC/CSO Institute of Hearing Research, before completing my PhD at the University of Nottingham, supervised by Professor Graham Naylor and Professor Avril Drummond.

During undergraduate and masters my research focused primarily on Trichotillomania and the neural oscillatory correlates of anxiety. Following my RA work I developed a keen interest in auditory impairment and rehabilitation, and the underlying psychology. My previous work examined the relationship between hearing loss, hearing aid fitting and fatigue.

In addition to my Medical Research Foundation fellowship titled "Socioemotional well-being as an individual factor in the assessment and amelioration of hearing loss", I am also involved in a project funded by the Hearing Industry Research Consortium investigating the impact of hearing loss on emotion, and the subsequent emotional impact of hearing aid fitting using ecological momentary assessment.

Selected Publications

Past Research

I am predominantly interested in auditory impairment and rehabilitation, and the underlying psychology. Previously I examined the relationship between hearing loss, hearing aid fitting and fatigue. Using methods such as longitudinal assessment and semi-structured interviews I also investigated the impact of hearing loss and hearing aid fitting on social, work and physical activity.
