I am a physiologist with a research history in auditory cell electrophysiology. Following a PhD at the University of Bristol, I worked with Gary Housley at the University of Auckland. Whilst there I investigated the development of electrical signalling in spiral ganglion neurons (afferent neurons innervating hair cells), including the role of purinergic neurotransmission and ion channels. After returning to UCL I was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (2003-2011). During this fellowship I worked closely with Andy Forge at the Ear Institute to study the role of gap junctions in the cochlea. More recently I have worked on the roles of primary cilia in hearing, and have returned to the auditory nerve to investigate various elements of neuronal and glial signalling.
