As a member of the research team, Susan is undertaking a PhD through The University of Western Australia and Ear Science Institute Australia.
Her PhD research is exploring assessment models for tinnitus both in adults and children. The first phase has involved determining whether an objective animal model of tinnitus assessment can be validated in a clinically representative adult tinnitus population. The second phase involves exploring the impact of tinnitus upon children and adolescents with a view to improving assessment approaches for children and adolescents with tinnitus.
Susan has been a clinical audiologist for 11 years following an earlier nursing career. She has had extensive experience in the provision of audiological care for both adults and children with tinnitus, hyperacusis and other sound intolerance issues. Susan is driven to improve patients’ access to audiological care for tinnitus and sound intolerance issues, to improve awareness of the care available and to improve the care available.
