He has a strong track record in the R&D of audiological device and fitting systems; he was inventor of the intellectual property that is the basis of the Neuromonics technology, and led the proof-of-concept clinical studies. He was responsible for the international clinical research programs of Oticon A/S, which is one of the world's largest manufacturers of hearing aids. Paul made significant contributions to the design of top-end digital hearing aids and their software-based fitting systems.
Dr. Davis has a degree in Psychology from Macquarie University, a postgraduate diploma in Audiology from the University of Queensland and a Masters and PhD in Audiology from Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. He has lectured in rehabilitative audiology, supervised postgraduate students, and conducted his own research into pediatric neuro-audiology, amplification systems, and tinnitus in adults. He has extensive clinical experience as an audiologist in private practice, hospital departments, government clinics, and other clinical and research settings.
