I had the privilege to work in four
different continents across five different countries (New Zealand, USA,
Singapore, India and UK) with diverse cultural population across various
settings such as hospitals, clinics, schools, and universities.
My research is instrumental in leading and informing better
tinnitus management practice. I have led several world’s first clinical trials
investigating the optimization of non-invasive brain stimulation for tinnitus
relief. In the past decade my research has addressed several unanswered
questions about brain stimulation and optimization of its parameters for
managing tinnitus. I have established and led tinnitus research collaborations
with universities in New Zealand, Australia, USA, UK, and several European
universities in Belgium, Germany, and Zurich.
