Personal profile


I did my PhD in neuroanatomy in the Netherlands (awarded May 1997). After a year long post-doc in hippocampal anatomy (1996-1997) I started late 1997 in the Auditory Laboratory at UWA. I have been fortunate enough to be able to keep working in this Laboratory ever since, initially as a research fellow based on grant funding from NH&MRC and international organizations. Since July 2015 I have been employed as a tenured teaching and research academic. I coordinate the neuroscience major and Master specialisation and teach into the latter. I am the research coordinator for he Master of Clinical Audiolog and coordinate and teach the basic science and research component of this course.


Funding overview

Over $3,500,000 in funding since 2001 from various sources such as NHMRC (eg Ideas grant, project grants), Channel 7 Telethon Trust, Neurotrauma Research Program,  Action on Hearing Loss (UK), Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (Malaysia).


I am a neuroscientist with an interest in sensory systems and in particular the Auditory System.  My research interests are within the brain plasticity seen after hearing loss and how this affects the development of tinnitus (perception of phantom sounds), the relationship between stress and tinniuts, how hearing loss can affect cognition and the impact and potential treatment of fibrosis following cochlear implants. 

My research spans from basic science studies in animal models to human studies of perception.  Our technical expertise includes electrophysiological measurements, behavioral studies as well as gene and protein expression studies.

Teaching overview

Coordinating and teaching into NEUR5011, PHYL5501, PHYL5510, PHYL5514, PHYL5511, PHYL5614 and PHYL5616. Co-coordinating Neuroscience major, Neuroscience specialisation in the Master of Biomedical Science and the Master of Clinical Audiology.
