Personal profile


Isabelle's research interest aims to facilitate evidence-based and patient-centered decision-making in hearing healthcare, in particular with decisions surrounding cochlear implantation. An overarching aim is to find integrated solutions that can make listening for communication easier for all.

First trained as a clinical audiologist (Université de Montréal- 2004), Isabelle is now a senior research fellow, project leader, and research program coordinator with the HEARing CRC. Over the years, Isabelle has developed broad knowledge of the work conducted by the different organisations in the field of hearing healthcare in Australia. She also leads the Audiology and Hearing Research Group (AHRG) meetings at Macquarie University.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
