My PhD research focussed on how children learn new sounds of a second or foreign language, and in particular the vowels. What I tried to find out was how differences in the training method and training input affected their learning patterns, and how children differed from adults in this.
My general research interests lie in speech perception and production, second language learning, sociolinguistics, and combinations of these.
Currently I teach various modules across the BSc/MSci Psychology and Language Sciences and the MSc Speech and Language Sciences as well as doing other ad hoc teaching in the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL. I also work as a lab manager for the Language Learning Lab with Dr Elizabeth Wonnacott, and work as a data manager and project manager for the Ecological Language project under Prof Gabriella Vigliocco.
