Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined Strathclyde in 2005 as a teaching fellow in Speech and Language Therapy with responsibility for the teaching of Clinical Phonetics and Phonology. I currently provide all Phonetics teaching alongside Clinical Linguistics (pragmatics, semantics, grammar, sociolinguistics).

My research interests involve collaborations with QMU and University of Glasgow in the areas of speech production and accent variation and change. In particular I am interested in the fine detailed articulation patterns of speech production in children with Down's syndrome and the application of articulatory techniques such as EPG and Ultrasound for intervention and teaching. 

I am also interested in the application of technology and social media for teaching, learning and assessment. Further interests include the use of online techniques for the learning and teaching of phonetics skills, and the importance of public engagement within Speech and Language Therapy.

I am currently the Course Leader for the BSc Speech and Language Pathology programme.

Expertise & Capabilities

  • Articulatory Speech Analysis (Electropalatography)
  • Speech in Down's syndrome
  • Accent variation and change

Teaching Interests

I am module leader and lecturer for the following:

B6105 Phonetics: Transcription

B6104 Phonetics: Theory

B6106 Specialised Anatomy for Speech and Language Pathology

B6103: Linguistics 1 Pragmatics and Psycholinguistics

Research Interests

My research interests have two separate strands. The first involves the investigation of specific articulation patterns in the discordered speech patterns in children with Down's syndrome. The second is concerned with the accent changes in the Glaswegian accent, and the contribution of media in these changes.
