Clinical audiologist, hearing rehabilitation, conversation analyst (PhD)
Worked with Australia's National Acoustic Laboratories (1982-2002) and became aware of the need for further research on naturally-occurring hearing-impaired interaction to inform audiologists' rehabilitation practices.

"My particular interest is the collaborative repair and prevention of problems of hearing and understanding arising in hearing-impaired communication, since advice on the management of such problems is provided in the course of audiological rehabilitation programs. I continue to be involved in the development of rehabilitation programs for cochlear implant recipients."
