I am part of the Centre for Language and Communication Research. My research focuses primarily on first language acquisition, specifically phonological acquisition (both perception and production). I am particularly interested in infants’ transition from babble to speech, and how this is shaped by internal and external factors.
Before moving to Cardiff I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Duke University, North Carolina, based in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. I have also worked at the Universities of York and Huddersfield.
