Hannah Cross

I’m a postdoctoral research associate at Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) within the University of Manchester. I am interested in improving the quality of life, wellbeing and cognition of older adults, particularly people with dementia. My research focuses on people with dementia and hearing loss living in care homes and in the community and seeks to understand and improve hearing assessments and care for this population.
