Research Interests

My research has spanned a wide range of topics in human hearing, but has most recently focused on the problem of how we can listen to one voice in the presence of interfering sounds, such as other speakers. It incorporates behavioural and electrophysiological experiments with normal-hearing listeners, and studies of hearing by deaf patients fitted with a cochlear implant.
