David Moore

Director, Communication Sciences Research Center, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Professor Moore co-founded the National Institute for Health Research NIHR Nottingham Hearing BRU in 2008 and he remains a lead for Habilitation for hearing loss. He researches the development and plasticity of hearing.

Educated in Australia, Dave Moore spent 22 years at Oxford University, becoming Professor of Auditory Neuroscience in 2000. As Director of MRC IHR since 2002, he has focused on human auditory development and learning.

Professor Moore has been a visiting scientist at the University of California, Irvine, the University of Washington, Seattle, New York University, and Northwestern University, Chicago. He was the founder of MindWeavers PLC, creators of auditory learning experiences. In 2010 he was awarded the George Davey Howells Prize for editing the Oxford Handbook of Auditory Science.

Expertise summary

Dave Moore leads a research team that blends psychophysical and audiological approaches to study the way that the brain develops over the lifespan. His research also considers aspects of plasticity - examining the effects of hearing loss on behaviour and the brain, as well as the effects of auditory training and learning. Part of his work at the Biomedical Research Unit focuses on internet-based and large-scale studies of hearing.
