I am a Senior Investigator Scientist in the Speech, Hearing and Language Group of the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. My research interests are based around aspects of human audition, and in particular: pitch perception; speech recognition; auditory grouping and segregation; hearing through cochlear and auditory brainstem implants.
