Speech perception is inherently multisensory. When following a face-to-face conversation, we rapidly integrate both visual and auditory signals to extract linguistic meaning. This is especially important in adverse listening conditions such as in noisy environments, or for individuals with hearing loss, where visual cues can significantly improve comprehension.

My PhD research at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit uses behavioural and neuroimaging data to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying the integration of audiovisual signals in speech and understand individual differences in audiovisual enhancement.
