Selina Jeanne Sutton

I have qualifications in speech and language studies, and work experience in human-computer interaction. My PhD combines these to focus on how the speech sounds we use may be affected by our interactions online, however I also aim to explore other (e.g. language, visual) communicative mediums also.
