Associate Lecturer Department of Psychology, University of York

I am currently interested in social communication between humans and animals. My work focusses on communication with dogs, including the production of dog-directed speech, and how dogs respond to communicative signals such as body language.

Some of my current projects aim to investigate the acoustic properties of infant- and pet-directed speech registers, individual differences in production of dog-directed speech, and the use of contextual barking in dogs. I am also interested in how dogs respond to these different properties, including their response to differences in language and affect.
