Dr Adele Goman PhD, MRes, BSc(Hons)

Lecturer

Biography

Dr. Goman is a Lecturer in Health Technology Assessment and Innovation in the School of Health and Social Care. She received her PhD in Psychology from the University of York where she investigated the clinical and cost-effectiveness of different technologies for hearing loss. She then completed postdoctoral training with a focus on hearing loss epidemiology, public health and clinical trials at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA. Dr. Goman then joined the faculty of the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the core faculty of the Johns Hopkins Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health. She is currently Associate faculty of the Johns Hopkins Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health and joined Edinburgh Napier University in 2021.

Research interests: The individual and societal impact of hearing loss and hearing loss interventions on health and wellbeing; addressing barriers and inequalities in hearing care and hearing technology utilization. Dr. Goman’s previous work on hearing loss prevalence provided foundational evidence towards legislative changes in the United States to improve access to hearing technology for millions of people (Over-The-Counter Hearing Aid Act 2017).

Research Supervision: Dr. Goman has supervised and co-supervised several undergraduate and postgraduate research student projects in the fields of hearing loss, public health, and psychology.

Teaching: Dr. Goman has delivered lectures, tutorials and workshops to undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and clinicians. She received a Departmental Teaching Award in recognition of effective teaching methods and a commitment to supporting students (University of York, 2015) and achieved the status of Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
