Prof. Brian C.J. Moore
University of Cambridge
Cambridge, UK
Brian Moore is Emeritus Professor of Auditory Perception in the University of Cambridge. His research interests are: the perception of sound; development of new diagnostic tests of hearing; design of signal processing hearing aids for sensorineural hearing loss; methods for fitting hearing aids to the individual. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the Academy of Medical Sciences, the Acoustical Society of America, The Audio Engineering Society, The British Society of Audiology, and the Association for Psychological Science, and an Honorary Fellow of the Belgian Society of Audiology and the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists. He was President of the Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals (UK) from 1994 to 2021. He has written or edited 22 books and over 777 scientific papers and book chapters. He has been awarded the Littler Prize and the Littler Lecture of the British Society of Audiology, the Silver and Gold medals of the Acoustical Society of America, the first International Award in Hearing from the American Academy of Audiology, the Award of Merit from the Association for Research in Otolaryngology, the Hugh Knowles Prize for Distinguished Achievement, and an honorary doctorate from Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland. He recently received the Life Achievement Award from the American Auditory Society. He is wine steward of Wolfson College, Cambridge. In his spare time he likes playing the guitar and fixing things.


Head of the Cognitive Neuroscience Center and the Learning Laboratory at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan. He published 12 books and over 100 academic papers (including in such prestigious journals as Cortex, Brain Structure and Function, Neuropsychologia, European Journal of Medical Genetics, Frontiers in Psychology, as well as in publishers such Springer International Publishing or University College Dublin Press). He has been working in more than 25 different research projects. He is a member of the editorial boards and a reviewer of dozens of international scientific journals, including the function of the editor of the journal Humanities and Social Sciences Communications, which is part of the Nature Portfolio. His current research belongs primarily to the area of neuromodulation and neurotechnology-enhanced learning. His research's primary goal is to develop knowledge of the applications of neurotechnology to support cognitive processes. He received the most important scientific distinction in his country – The Polish Academy of Sciences Award, and the highest scholarship for young scientists – Scholarship of the Polish Ministry of Science for Outstanding Young Scientists.

Dr Karolina Kluk-de Kort
University of Manchester
Manchester, UK
Karolina Kluk is a Senior Lecturer at The University of Manchester and is an expert in psychoacoustics and human auditory electrophysiology. She completed her PhD in psychoacoustics at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Professor Brian CJ Moore. She was awarded the Pauline Ashley Prize from Deafness Research UK, which allowed her to spend six months at the Evoked Response Laboratory of Professor Terry Picton at the University of Toronto, where she gained experience of auditory electrophysiological techniques. Her independent research started in 2006, when she became a Lecturer at the University of Manchester. Her research falls within two core themes that can be classified as auditory neuroscience (fundamental research relating to basic auditory function and cross interaction between auditory and vestibular systems) and translational hearing science (applied translational research focused on objective hearing-function assessment). Her work is funded by research grants from a variety of sources including the Medical Research Council  (MRC), the Wellcome Trust, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), charities and international industries. Karolina is also a Director of Social Responsibility for School of Health Sciences and leads Athena SWAN (Scientific Women's Academic Network), championing equality, diversity and inclusion in academia.
