I qualified as a speech and language therapist in 1983. I held clinical posts in the NHS for 17 years, specialising in acquired adult neurology. I joined UCL in 2000 when I was awarded the Tavistock Research Fellowship to complete my PhD. My current role is Director of Studies in Speech and Language Therapy, with overall responsibility for pre-registration education for speech and language therapy programmes.

Research Summary

1) Non verbal communication in aphasia: This research investigates the use of non-verbal communication strategies by people with limited speech or writing following post-stroke aphasia. The research tests theories about the relationship between language and thinking. Its clinical relevance lies in the potential for developing clinical assessment and intervention tools for use in speech and language therapy practice. This work was originally supported by a Research Fellowship from The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia. It continues via an international collaboration with the Laboratoire Structures Formelles de Langage, Universite Paris 8 and professional doctorate projects.

2) Information access in aphasia: This research investigates the provision and accessibility of information for people with aphasia, thus addressing national priorities for patient inclusion and participation. It is carried out in collaboration with leading clinical service providers.

3) Evaluation of third-sector support for people with aphasia: in collaboration with TALK, a charity providing community-based volunteer-led support.
