Dr Betty Mousikou

Personal profile

I am a psycholinguist with interdisciplinary training in Education, Linguistics, Speech Therapy, Cognitive Neuropsychology, and Cognitive Science, interested in understanding the mechanisms that underpin our ability to process and produce language, and how such mechanisms may fail to operate in acquired language disorders.

I am currently a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow working on a project that aims to uncover the range of processes that underlie reading aloud and speech production by combining methods from cognitive psychology and experimental phonetics. My most recent work involves the use of Ultrasound Tongue Imaging, a state-of-the-art technique in speech production research, to investigate how the tongue moves during speech. 

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, and a Co-Investigator on a British Academy small research grant that seeks to determine the acoustic correlates of stress in speech perception (both awarded to Prof. Kathy Rastle). I am an Associate Investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (http://www.ccd.edu.au/) and a Research Affiliate at the Clinical Audiology, Speech and Language (CASL) Research Centre at Queen Margaret University (http://www.qmu.ac.uk/casl/).
