Research summary

I combine behavioural, neurophysiological, computational, and virtual reality techniques to study the development of spatial hearing and its maintenance in adulthood. The complementary goals of this research are to provide basic insight into auditory processing and use these insights to improve auditory function in specific environments or populations where it is compromised. See my website (www.auditorybrain.com) for further information about my work.


I obtained a BA in Psychology and Philosophy from Trinity College, Dublin before moving to the University of Oxford to do an MSc in Neuroscience. I subsequently completed a DPhil in Physiology as a Newton Abraham scholar in the Oxford Auditory Neuroscience Group, where I also pursued postdoctoral research. I am currently a Rosetrees UCL Excellence Fellow at the Ear Institute, where I will start a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship in 2020.
