Gabrielle Saunders

Gabrielle (Gaby) Saunders is a Senior Research Fellow at Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) at the University of Manchester, UK. She joined the group in February 2020 (just in time for lockdown). Prior to that, she spent most of her career in the US, where most recently she was a Senior Scientist and the Associate Director of the VA National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR) in Portland, Oregon. Her research focuses on auditory rehabilitation and is broadly designed to optimize outcomes of hearing-related interventions, including as hearing screening, assistive technology and education, using principles of person-centred care and health behaviour psychology. Her hope is that her research will help towards making clinical care be evidence-based, family-centerd and personalized.

Was that uncomfortable or what?
