I am a Speech and Language Therapist, Cognitive Neuropsychologist and

I work to combine research into language processing in healthy adults and those with acquired language and communication difficulties as a result of neurological damage. For example, individuals with aphasia following a stroke, or with speech and voice difficulties as a result of Parkinson's Disease.
