Physics and the Mammalian Ear Biosketches
Geoffrey A. Manley was educated in Cambridge, UK, and Princeton, NJ, be- fore holding a postdoctoral position in Australia and a professorship at McGill University, Montreal. He is the founding professor of the Institute for Zoology at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen,
Germany, from which he retired in 2011. His research em- phasis is on a comparative approach to the middle and inner ears of amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, for which he received the Award of Merit from the Association for Re- search in Otolaryngology in 2016.
Andrei Lukashkin is a reader in neu- roscience at the University of Brigh- ton, UK. He received a Wellcome Stu- dentship in mathematical biology and completed his PhD at the University of Sussex, UK, where he also gained his postdoctoral experience. He is inter-
ested in the physiology and biophysics of the cochlea, with the main research focus on cochlear micromechanics and otoacoustic emissions.
Patrício Simões is a research fellow in the Sensory Neuroscience Research Group at the University of Brighton, UK. He holds a PhD in zoology from the University of Cambridge, UK (2013), with a focus on insect neuroecology. His current interests are the physiology of vertebrate cochlear
supporting cells and hearing function in mosquitoes.
George Burwood received his BSc (Hons) in medical neuroscience from the University of Sussex, UK, and his PhD in auditory physiology from the Uni- versity of Brighton, UK. He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Nuttall lab at the Oregon Health and
Science University, Portland. His present research uses op- tical coherence tomography to study the mechanics of the low-frequency region of the inner ear and cochlear blood
flow in deafness mutants.
Ian Russell is a professor of neurobiol- ogy at the University of Brighton, UK. At the University of Sussex, UK, he in- stigated majors in neurobiology and cognitive and medical neuroscience. He founded a research laboratory where
three members initiated cochlear research that led to their appointments to the Fellowship of the Royal Society. Russell received the Award of Merit from the Association for Re- search in Otolaryngology in 2010. He investigates the work- ings of the cochlea related to normal and impaired hearing. He also studies the acoustic behavior and underlying physi- ology in mosquitoes and the cochlear mechanisms involved in bat echolocation.
