Research summary

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.

Audiology research:

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.

Higher Education Teaching & Learning Research: 

I am a passionate teacher. My reflective and innovative academic practice has gained several prestigious fellowships such as: CMALT, HERDSA and SFHEA. My research interest is focused on using technology and innovation in creating meaningful learning spaces, E-mentoring and use of Instructor Made Videos (IMV) to personalize student learning.
