I completed my PhD at The University of Sydney, Australia in 2018. I am an HCPC registered Speech and Language Therapist, and have previously practised clinically in Australia. I am a certified practising member of Speech Pathology Australia.
My area of interest is in the clinical management of speech sound disorders in children.
I am currently working on the EPSRC-funded Ultrax2020 project (http://www.ultrax-speech.org/research/ultrax-2020)
I am interested in investigating how intervention outcomes can be optimised for children with speech sound disorders. This has led me to investigate the service delivery contexts in which speech and language therapists provide therapy services, and also to consider the role that parents can play in delivering effective intervention. I am particularly interested in exploring the active ingredients of intervention for speech sound disorders, and identifying which components (or combination of components) of intervention lead to changes in a child's speech.
My current area of research is investigating the role of biofeedback and ultrasound imaging of the tongue in both assessment and intervention processes for speech sound disorders. I am interested in how the additional information provided by ultrasound may contribute to both improved assessment/diagnosis and intervention outcomes.
