Nokia Foundation Award for Maria Uther

Maria Uther, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, University of Winchester, received a Nokia Foundation Distinguished Professor Award at a ceremony in Helsinki on 22 November, 2017.

Maria Uther (pictured above centre) is one of five Nokia Visiting Professors 2017 and receives a grant to undertake research with CICERO Learning Network.

Her research expertise lies in auditory and speech perception, mobile learning and the use of digital technologies. Her new research in Finland builds on the 'Say it Again Kid' project which investigated the perception of sound in children who were learning a language using mobile devices. It will look at adult perceptions of sound in learning apps on mobile devices to see if age, language background or device type affects perception of sound quality.

Maria Uther will be visiting CICERO Learning in April - June, 2018.
