Mark Fletcher is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research and leads the electro-haptics research project. The electro-haptics project focuses on improving hearing in cochlear implant users by presenting missing sound information through vibration on the skin. Mark also leads a related project involving the development of a virtual acoustics system for use in clinical and research facilities and for remote training and testing. Mark also co-created the RealSpeech auditory training app, which focuses on the recreation of highly realistic auditory environments and is currently part of a UK-wide trial as part of the CHOICE remote care platform.

Before working at Southampton, Mark did his PhD at the Institute of Hearing Research, where he used auditory psychophysics and otoacoustic emissions to help develop methods for measuring top-down control of cochlear processing in humans. Mark is currently involved in the Health Effects of Ultrasound in Air (HEFUA) project, which is investigating potential adverse health effects caused by very high-frequency sound and ultrasound, and is also involved in a joint project with University College London, to develop an app to monitor long-term noise exposure from smartphone listening.
