I joined Aston University in September 2016, having spent the previous four years gaining experience as a Clinical Audiologist, and developing research skills within a medical college. I have a strong passion for the understanding and enhancement of patient outcomes, from service provision to long term clinical management. This is reflected in my research interests to design interventions that will have direct benefit to patients with concurrent health conditions such as hearing loss and cognitive decline. I am currently undertaking a part-time PhD to investigate the impact of hearing loss and dementia on social isolation in older adults.In addition, I maintain my clinical status by seeing patients part-time for adult aural rehabilitation and tinnitus management.
My research interests lie primarily in the associations between age-related hearing loss, cognitive decline, dementia, and social isolation. I am part of the Applied Health Research Group at Aston University and my research fits within the remit of the Aston Research Centre for Healthy Ageing.
Part-time PhD funded by School of Life & Health Sciences, Aston University
