This knowledge is filtered through to the rest of the team at Cubex. He is a great facilitator and his passion and many years of experience in the field makes him a perfect mentor.

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.
Prior to joining Cubex, Saima worked in the NHS and taught students of Clinical Audiology. She began her PhD in Auditory Perception at Aston University (Birmingham) in 2012 and achieved her doctorate in 2016. Her research explores some of the ways in which the brain makes sense of the complex mass of sounds arriving at our ears. Saima has continued to remain involved in research and teaching as an Honorary Lecturer at the UCL Ear Institute, incorporating evidence-based practice into the clinical care we offer at Cubex.
“What drew me to Cubex was the commitment to high quality, individually-tailored care coupled with innovative, scientifically-driven treatments. What resonated most with me was the sincere commitment to helping people engage effortlessly with those they love and the world around them. I aim to view each and every person who steps through the door with fresh eyes, as unique individuals, deserving of the best possible care.”
Saima has maintained commitments within the voluntary sector for over a decade now. Specifically, within Audiology, she assisted with developing services in the Northern Province, Sri Lanka (2011 and 2013) providing basic training to staff and students at Jaffna Teaching Hospital. More generally, she has been involved in the Ending Loneliness Project, a voluntary movement addressing the increasing impact of loneliness on young and older adults in the UK, alongside her interests in global healthcare.
