Professor Ray Meddis

It is with great sadness the Department of Psychology announces the death of Emeritus Professor Ray Meddis.

Ray joined the Department in 1996 and retired in 2011. The Department remembers Ray for his intellect, his ability to inspire colleagues and students alike, his willingness to discuss ideas, and in particular for his friendliness and kindness. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.

Ray was recognised internationally for his research on hearing including the development of computer models of hearing.

The BioAid hearing aid app Ray helped develop was shortlisted in the Outstanding Contribution to Innovation and Technology category of the national Times Higher Education Awards in 2014 and was downloaded thousands of times.

A full obituary will be published in due course.

Please feel free to leave a tribute or memory about Ray in our comment section.
