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.
I am a Lecturer in Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading, UK. This post allows me to work clinically as a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT), continue research and teach trainee SLTs and postgraduate students.
I completed a doctorate at University College London (UCL), with Professor Gabriella Vigliocco and then post-doctoral research with Professor Karalyn Patterson at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge, UK. I completed training to be an SLT at UCL, before starting my post at the University of Reading.
