Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a first-year PhD student in the Laboratory for Innovation in Autism.  My research centres around language development and use in autistic children and non-speaking adults.  I have a First Class MA (Hons) in Linguistics from The University of Edinburgh and experience working in education at various levels.

Research Interests

My research interests span a number of topics.  Whilst my PhD research is focused on language development and use in autistic children and non-speaking adults, I am also interested in language acquisition more generally, language pathology, and themes relating to education.
