Ariane Laplante-Lévesque

Adjunct Professor

I am passionate about hearing healthcare that makes a difference. Through my research, I work towards devices and services that truly help people with hearing impairment live their lives to the fullest.

I am Adjunct Professor at Linköping University. I am also Technical Advisor in eye and ear care at the World Health Organization, at the regional office for Europe, where I focus on providing technical support to Member States towards strengthening eye and ear care policies.

Trained as a clinical audiologist in Canada, I practised in Australia and completed my PhD at the University of Queensland on involving adults in their hearing healthcare. I completed a Masters of Public Health with distinction from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

My interests include evidence-based practices, clinical epidemiology, eHealth, public health, and health policies. I have published over 65 influential peer-reviewed publications with more than 100 different co-authors.

I am Associate Editor of the peer-reviewed publication International Journal of Audiology, a Member of the Executive Board of the International Society of Audiology, and a Member of the International Collegium of Rehabilitative Audiology.
