Projects per year
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.
