Personal profile

Personal Statement

A research associate on the Variation in Child Speech (VariCS) project with Dr. Anja Kuschmann. 

After completing a BA honours in Psychology, I developed an interest in linguistics and chose to complete my Masters in Linguistics from Utrecht University, Netherlands. My Masters project focused on investigating speech rhythm in the motor speech disorder, dysarthria. 

My doctorate with Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, investigated acoustic speech markers to track speech changes in hypokinetic dysarthria associated with Parkinson's disease. 

I have previously worked as a research assistant on an Innovation Fellowship at Queen Margaret University, focused on the development of ultrasound as a new clinical assessment tool of swallowing function.  

I have a keen interest in phonetics and speech production in speech and communication disorders, and in speech variability. I also have an interest in engaging in research that combines speech research and speech technology to strengthen diagnosis and intervention of speech and communication disorders.
