Dr Wendy Lecluyse began her career as a Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist. She obtained my graduate degree in Speech and Language Therapy and Audiology in 1998 at Ghent University (BEL) and subsequently worked as an SLT specializing in hearing impairment and specific language impairments. Her PhD, obtained at the University of Essex, focused on developing detailed assessment procedures for hearing impairments. During a subsequent research position, Wendy studied speech perception in noisy environments and worked on the development of a biologically-inspired hearing aid.
Wendy joined the University of Suffolk in 2012 and has since been involved in substantive module and course development and leadership at School and University level. She has been an elected member of Senate since 2016 and is the elected staff representative of Senate on the Board of the University of Suffolk.
