Music to Deaf Ears

Here is a link to the radio documentary I worked on over the summer.

What do deaf people hear? How far are scientists in their understanding of the auditory system? And how close are they in their ability to restore hearing? These are some of the questions the documentary ‘Music to Deaf Ears’ addresses. The piece aims to take the listener on a journey through the science, experience and sound of different types and gradations of hearing loss to allow listeners with normal hearing a glimpse into the world of a deaf person.

So You want To Be a Scientist?

I am currently working at BBC Radio 4 on Material World's 'So You Want To Be A Scientist?' We're still looking for more science ideas and big questions from non-scientist. So if there is something you've always wanted to know, send it in to the SYWTBAS webstite. If your idea makes it into the final, you'll be teamed up with a scientist who will help you design an experiment that could answer your question and you'll be doing the experiment yourself together with the scientist! For more info, see the SYWTBAS website.
