Research interests

Victoria is interested in qualitative research in Audiology, particularly the experiences of teenagers with cochlear implants. She is currently exploring their experience of cochlear implant surgery and how this may impact on other aspects of their rehabilitation. She is also interested in the transition of Audiology students from University to clinical placement.
