I currently hold the Chair in Speech and Hearing Science here at UCL, where I have worked since July of 1977 (but for an 18 month hiatus in '94-'95 in the wilds of the American midwest). My initial move to London was to work in a team developing one of the first cochlear implant systems. Part of my research still involves cochlear implants, particularly concerning signal processing for optimal speech perception.

My research is broadly-based in hearing and speech, with an emphasis on the interface between the two. Over the years I have studied a variety of aspects of auditory perception (speech and non-speech) in adults and children, both in disordered and normal populations.

Over the past 15 years or so, I have extended my work to more central auditory processes, and am involved in studies of functional brain imaging, and auditory processing in people with disorders of hearing, speech and language including auditory processing disorder (APD), specific language impairment and dyslexia.

Most recently, much of my work concerns the perception of speech in background noises of different types, with a wide variety of 'noises' and listener groups (children and adults, with normal and impaired hearing, and with and without various developmental disorders).
