Biography

I am Reader at the UCL Ear Institute, and Consultant in Audiological Medicine at the National Hospital for Neurology and Great Ormond Street Hospital. I hold a personal Senior Lecturership award by the Department of Health Higher Education Funding Council for England. I trained in ENT in Greece, in Audiological Medicine in the UK and undertook a three-month funded fellowship to train in auditory processing disorders in Professor Musiek‚Äôs department in USA. My PhD is on auditory processing in patients with structural brain lesions.

I have been Director and Organiser of the Current Trends in Auditory Processing Disorders instructional courses since 2001 and Programme Director of the MSc in Audiovestibular Medicine (UCL) since 2010.I have served as Secretary elect  of the British Society of Audiology, Chair of the Auditory Processing Disorders Specialist Interest Group (BSA) and Editor of the Neuro-otology Module of the eBrain e-learning module (RCP and EFNS).  Currently I am adviser in Audiology to the JLO, and in the Editorial Board of the Audiological Medicine journal and the Folia Logopaedica Phoniatrica.

Research Summary

My main research interest is auditory processing in normal and neurological subjects, correlation with brain structure and phenotype. For my PhD thesis, I assessed auditory processing in patients with a PAX6 mutation. The finding of auditory deficits in association with this mutation had not been previously reported.I also investigated auditory processing in patients with stroke of the insular cortex, and patient reported auditory difficulties and correlation with tests and lesion in patients with stroke..

My main research aims include:
To assess management interventions for APD in normal and neurological populations across the age span.
To assess the prevalence of hearing loss and auditory processing deficits in patients with stroke, and their correlation with patient reported symptoms and communication, and explore intervention strategies. 
To investigate the association of vestibular/balance disorders with psychiatric/cognitive disorders and how this affects vestibular rehabilitation outcomes, with a special intrest in balance in the elderly.
Aetiological investigations of hearing loss: genetic and other causes.
