Research Interests

My primary research goal is to improve accessibility, affordability, and outcomes of hearing healthcare services for older adults with hearing loss by promoting self-management and also use of digital technologies. My past and current research can be summarized along the following four themes: (1) eHealth (or Telehealth); (2) Consumer Health Informatics; (3) Hearing healthcare service delivery model; and (4) Psychosocial aspects of hearing loss. I co-lead the Virtual Hearing Lab ( with Prof. De We Wet Swanepoel. The Virtual Hearing Lab is an interdisciplinary collaborative research initiative with the aim to improve hearing health access, affordability, and outcomes by capitalizing on the internet, virtual spaces, and digital health.
