Will Sedley is an academic clinical lecturer at Newcastle University, dividing his time between research into brain mechanisms for tinnitus and clinical practice in neurology. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Nottingham in 2007, and completed his PhD at Newcastle University in 2015.

His work in tinnitus is conducted on human volunteers, and has been ongoing since 2008, using a variety of brain recording methods including MRI and EEG. A particular area of interest is in automatic predictions made by the brain, and how these might contribute to developing tinnitus, or indeed to suppressing it.
