I am interested in how children perceive spoken language and how this relates to language and literacy development. I completed my PhD at UCL in 2019, supervised by Professor Mairéad MacSweeney and Professor Charles Hulme. My PhD research focussed on the relationship between visual speech perception, phonological awareness and reading in deaf and hearing children. I use techniques such as eyetracking, structural equation modelling and training studies.
I am currently working on the Hearing and Language Outcomes project with Dr Lorna Halliday, a longitudinal project investigating spoken language development in primary-school-aged children with mild-to-profound sensorineuronal hearing loss.
