Qualifications – PhD, Audiology
With a mother who is a doctor and a father who is an electronic engineer, Saima was drawn to a career that was an elegant synthesis of both professions. She undertook her BSc (Hons.) in Audiology at the UCL Ear Institute where she was awarded student prizes for both academic and clinical excellence. Through working with patients, she grew to better understand the real-life, everyday implications of hearing loss.
Before joining Cubex, Saima worked in the NHS and provided sessional lecturing to UCL students. Whilst doing so, she began her PhD in Auditory Perception at Aston University (Birmingham) in 2012 and achieved her doctorate in 2016. Her research looks at unpicking some of the ways in which the brain makes sense of the complex mass of sounds arriving at our ears.
“What drew me to Cubex was the commitment to high quality, individually-tailored care. Coupled with Cubex’s involvement in innovative, scientifically driven treatments, I saw a unique approach to hearing care in the UK which I wanted to be part of. Ultimately, it comes down to a sincere commitment to helping people communicate and engage with the world around them, including those who love them. That is what resonates with me the most. In my opinion, each and every person who steps through the door is unique, and deserves the best possible care.”
Saima has maintained commitments within the voluntary healthcare sector for over 7 years. She was involved in developing Audiology services in the Northern Province Sri Lanka (in 2011 and 2013) to provide basic training to staff and medical students at Jaffna Teaching Hospital.
With a background in South Indian Classical Music and Dance, Saima loves music. She is currently listening to Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox and George The Poet.
I love to use swimming and bouldering to help me de-stress. Now that my PhD is over, I hope to be able to resume reading fiction. I enjoy short stories, particularly by Thomas Mann and Anton Chekhov.”

Nadia has a strong passion for counselling that has allowed her to help other person through difficulties in their lives with care and empathy.

Humanistic counselling focuses on the individual’s strengths and offers a safe non-judgmental environment for a person to explore and healing to begin. This is her calling.
I chose to work with Cubex as it offers a very therapeutic service for all their patients. Cubex takes the time and effort to make their patients feel comfortable, relaxed while in their establishment. To know and understand their patient’s needs. This is very similar to the counselling world.
The beautiful aroma which travels through the building and the friendly staff willing to go the extra for their patients makes the whole experience of Cubex one to remember.

When not working for Cubex I love to swim, my mother calls me her little Mermaid. I won numerous awards in school for swimming I find this to be my outlet of peace. Reflection is another therapeutic method I have learnt on my counselling journey which benefits me in all areas of my life.

Qualifications – Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.)
David was born and raised in New York City, where he received a BSc in psychology, and had initially considered pursuing a career in mental health. He was drawn to the field of audiology after his grandmother began seeing an audiologist for the care of her hearing loss. Through this journey with a loved one, he was able to witness firsthand the benefits of improving hearing and communication and undergoing audiological treatment.
David was struck by the strong correlation between the fields of psychology and audiology, particularly with audiology’s focus on cognitive well-being. He decided to pursue a career as an audiologist and was awarded the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree in 2014 by the City University of New York.
David began his career working for a private practice in the Finger Lakes region of rural Upstate New York. He has since relocated “across the pond” to the UK, where he has worked as an audiologist for the NHS in Essex. David is excited to work once again in private practice by joining the team at Cubex. He very much values the holistic approach that Cubex takes to hearing healthcare, and enjoys partnering with patients and their families to achieve the best possible outcomes in their treatment.
Outside of work, David loves to travel and explore the world, whether it’s backpacking to a remote corner of the globe or merely taking a walk through the English countryside. He has so far been to 29 countries and looks forward to adding many more to his list.
Dana’s desire to work in Audiology began while studying at the University of Arizona, obtaining her bachelor’s degree in speech and hearing sciences. To her, audiology works like a large puzzle, with integral pieces that we must assess before moving onto another. This aspect of problem-solving makes Audiology a new and exciting profession that keeps evolving and piquing her interest. Dana is also interested in helping people with disabilities since she acquired a physical disability at the age of 10 and felt she can empathise with patients from all walks of life.
Dana recently moved to London from San Diego, California to obtain her MSc in Audiological Science with Clinical Practice, and will be completing her clinical practicum at Cubex this year. She was attracted to the high quality of London’s Universities and wanted the challenge of immersing herself in a different culture.
Dana is drawn to Cubex for their commitment to person-centred care, commitment to excellence, and innovative approaches to treatment. She knows she has a lot to learn regarding patient care and feels that Cubex is the best place to acquire the necessary professional skills.
Outside of Audiology, Dana is a professional athlete and Paralympic tennis player who represented the USA at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio and hopes to do so again in 2020 at the Games in Tokyo.
