Mr Leigh Martin

Interacoustics Academy Global Manager
Leigh is an Audiologist and Global Manager of the Interacoustics Academy. Clinically, he has worked in the National Health Service and in the private sector in the UK specialising in both pediatric audiology and adult diagnostics and rehabilitation. Leigh has also sat on the board of directors for the British Academy of Audiology. For the last four years Leigh has been working in the Interacoustics Academy firstly as an International Clinical Trainer, then as Head of Clinical Training Asia and now as the Manager of the Academy. Leigh has presented at over 20 scientific conferences and meetings across a diverse range of audiological topics as well as having published papers in both video head impulse testing (vHIT) and wideband tympanometry.

Mr Darren Whelan

International Clinical Trainer
Darren holds an undergraduate degree in Audiology and a master’s degree in Health Science, Neurophysiology and Clinical Research. His resume counts several senior clinical positions in the NHS. Prior to his current occupation, Darren held a clinical and research scientist role, where he investigated patients with auditory and vestibular pathology, and managed a portfolio of research studies.

Amanda Goodhew

International Clinical Trainer
Amanda holds a Master's degree in Audiology from the University of Southampton. She has extensive experience holding senior audiologist positions in numerous NHS hospitals and clinics, where her primary focus has been pediatric audiology. Her specific areas of interest are electrophysiology, neonatal diagnostics and amplification, and the assessment and rehabilitation of patients with complex needs.

Michael Maslin

Ph.D. International Clinical Trainer
After working for several years as an audiologist in the UK, Michael completed his Ph.D. in 2010 at The University of Manchester. The topic was plasticity of the human binaural auditory system. He then completed a 3-year post-doctoral research program that built directly on the underpinning work carried out during his Ph.D. Since 2015, Michael has worked for the Interacoustics Academy, a group of audiologists based in Denmark who offer training and education in audiological and vestibular diagnostics worldwide and offer a link between clinical or research institutes and their industry partners. In 2017, Michael and his family relocated to New Zealand where he continues in the same role with the Interacoustics Academy and Diatec NZ. He is pursuing his research interests at the University of Auckland with financial support from the Eisdell Moore Centre.

Dr. Peter Bray

Ph.D., Interacoustics OAE Specialist
After obtaining a Medical Physics degree, Peter Bray worked for 5 years as a researcher in David Kemp's team at University College London. This led to a PhD in Biophysics and the design of the ILO88 TEOAE instrument. The following 25 years were spent providing R&D services at Otodynamics designing TEOAE and DPDOE instrumentation. Then, in 2014, Peter joined Interacoustics as an OAE specialist and data scientist working on the full range of OAE topics in addition to ASSR screening technology.

Professor John A. Ferraro

Ph.D., FASHA, FAAA
John A. Ferraro, Ph.D., FASHA, FAAA, is a professor in the Department of Hearing and Speech at The University of Kansas (KU). Prior to his arrival at KU, Ferraro held positions of assistant and associate professor at The Ohio State University's Speech and Hearing Science Section (1974-1981) and as clinical neurophysiologist at Swedish Medical Center, Englewood, Colo. (1981-1984). Ferraro's research interests are in the areas of auditory electrophysiology with special emphasis on the clinical applications of auditory- and vestibular-evoked potentials. He has pioneered techniques for using these potentials in the diagnosis, assessment and management of otological/neuro-otological disorders. With an additional focus specifically on the anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, Ferraro has worked to develop and refine non-invasive electrocochleographic approaches to help diagnose and monitor Meniere's disease/endolymphatic hydrops.
