PhD candidate of Modern Languages, University of Cambridge

As a PhD student working within Strand 6 of the MEITS project, Katie’s research examines the impact of bilingualism on children on the autism spectrum. Her work seeks to illuminate the school experience of bilingual children in England and Wales who have been diagnosed with autism. It also aims to delineate the perspectives of parents and teachers, adopting a multi-informant, phenomenological approach. Katie comes to Strand 6 with three years’ experience as a Modern Foreign Languages teacher in Oxford and Yorkshire, and as a former translation trainee at the European Parliament.
