I am interested in most areas of cognitive psychology, neuroscience and neuropsychology, with a focus on language. I also have a soft spot for experimental methods and analyses used in psychophysics.
My work translates between theory and clinical practice. This means I try to understand the mechanisms and motivation for assessment, intervention and strategies to support adults with acquired speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) as a result of neurological damage.
