Personal profile

I am a cognitive scientist interested in understanding the processes underlying reading and speech production. My research interests also include cognitive neuropsychology (acquired and developmental speech and reading disorders) and computational modelling of normal and impaired reading.

I am currently a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow working with Prof. Kathy Rastle on a project that aims to develop a comprehensive theory of speech production by investigating the relationship between computing abstract codes for sounds and implementing them in space and time. Our research combines methods from cognitive psychology and experimental phonetics to explain how the journey from mind to mouth is accomplished and to enhance our understanding of clinical disorders of speech production.

I am also a Co-Investigator on a Leverhulme Trust funded project that uses a combination of behavioural, neuropsychological, and computational modelling methods to investigate how people read multisyllabic words (http://www.rastlelab.com/), and an Associate Investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (http://www.ccd.edu.au/).
