Kevin J Munro is Ewing Professor of Audiology within the School of Psychological Sciences (SPS). He is also an Honorary Consultant Clinical Scientist in Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
He is head of the Audiology and Deafness (A&D) research group within SPS. The A&D research group aspires to be the leading centre in the UK and a world leader in three broad areas:
Bridging basic and translational hearing research
Innovative research that translates basic underpinning research into direct benefit to people who have a hearing dysfunction
- Research that underpins and delivers improved services in health care and education for adults and children with a hearing loss.
Our research underpins, and is informed by, our leading role in audiology education and audiological service delivery in the UK. Our multidisciplinary research team includes professionals in audiology, deaf education and medicine, in addition to scientists’ expert in psychophysics, electrophysiology, signal processing and neural imaging. Our research is currently grouped into five themes although there is some overlap. There are also a number of cross-cutting stands including electrophysiological and psychophysical methodologies.
Coding and processing [Theme Lead, Professor Chris Plack]
Clinical assessment and management [Theme Lead, Dr Kai Uus]
Plasticity and ageing [Theme Lead, Professor Kevin J Munro]
Auditory devices and technology [Theme Lead, Dr Michael Stone]
- Improving service delivery [Theme Lead, Professor Wendy McCracken]
Kevin J Munro leads the research theme on Plasticity and ageing. This theme is concerned with understanding the changes that occur over time in the auditory system due to training, deafness, development, or restoration of input to a deaf auditory system. The translational goal of this research is to guide fitting and management options for hearing devices.
Amongst his various university roles, he is currently academic lead for philanthropy within the School of Psychological Sciences (SPS), and one of the Chairs of the University Student Discipline, Complaints and Appeals Committee. He is a former Director of Graduate Matters for SPS.
His professional roles have included Chairman of the British Society of Audiology, Chief Examiner for the Certificate of Audiological Competence (CAC) and Chairman of the Board of Senior Examiners.
He is involved in a variety of public engagement activities.

I carry our translational research by asking hypothesis-driven research questions that impact on clinical practice. My research activities generally fall within the following categories:
- plasticity and ageing in the auditory system
- assessment and management of hearing disorders (e.g., selection and verification of hearing instruments, off-frequency listening and 'dead regions' in the cochlea, listening effort and fatigue)
- epidemiology of hearing loss
- auditory genetics
Teaching is primarily focused on UG and PG programmes in Audiology:
Advanced hearing instruments and contemporary trends in aural rehabilitation: BSc3 (HCDI 3221)
Dissertation: MSc (PSYC 61616)
Research project introduction: MSc (PSYC 64002)
Research project: MSc (PSYC 64003)
Contribute to other teaching units including: (i) Auditory Assessment and Management (MSc, PSYC 60095 and PSYC 60651) and (ii) Clinical and Behavioural Neuroscience (MSc, PSYC 60142)
The early career of Kevin J Munro was spent as a hearing health care professional within, or funded by, the National Health Service. He is a state registered clinical scientist with clinical experience in all areas of adult and paediatric assessment and rehabilitation. He entered academia in 2002, after completing a PhD on the topic of perceptual learning and auditory acclimatisation, in order to pursue a career as a researcher of international calibre. His research and teaching is motivated by the desire to influence and improve clinical practice for adults and children with hearing and/or balance related disorders. He has a well-established national and international reputation in hearing health care with a proven ability to plan and shape the direction of research and teaching activities. He has an extensive track record of: i) teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level, ii) published research, and iii) presenting research findings at conferences and professional meetings. He attracts research grant support from a variety of sources including MRC, NIHR, charities and international industries. His research is acknowledged to have made a significant impact on profession, industry and clinical practice. He is actively involved in professional activities at a national and international level.
