Author Biography - H. Cooper
Huw R. Cooper, MSc, Consultant Audiological Scientist, after obtaining his Master's degree in audiology at Southampton University in 1983, joined the team at University College Hospital, London, where he initially worked on tinnitus research. He was then closely involved in the set-up and development of the new UCH/RNID Cochlear Implant Programme, which led the way in establishing cochlear implantation in the UK. Since 1991, he has managed the audiology services at University Hospital Birmingham, including overseeing the growth and development of the Midlands Adult and the Birmingham Children's Cochlear Implant Programmes. His research interests include Neural Response Telemetry and Auditory Perceptual Grouping, on which topic he is currently working towards a PhD. Huw lives just outside Birmingham with his wife and three teenage children. Louise C. Craddock, MSc, CCC-A, Audiological Scientist, originally trained as a teacher of hearing-impaired children and taught in London for twelve years before obtaining her MSc in Audiology at the University of Washington in Seattle. Since then she has worked on the UCL Adult and Nuffield Paediatric Cochlear Implant Programmes in London and is now the Co-ordinator of the Midlands Adult Cochlear Implant Programme in Birmingham. She has a research interest in objective measures in cochlear implantation, particularly in Neural Response Telemetry, and has published and presented her work in this area. Louise lives in Birmingham with her husband and two young daughters.
