  • Language & Cognition
  • Div of Psychology & Lang Sciences
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I trained as a neurologist in Australia before relocating to the UK and undertaking a PhD in language neuroscience at Imperial College London. After completing my PhD I moved to a post-doctoral research position in the Department of Experimental Psychology at UCL, and then took up the post of Lecturer within the Department of Language & Communication. 

Research Summary

My research to date has focused on the functional organisation of brain regions supporting language processes in healthy individuals and in people with acquired language disorders such as aphasic stroke, using a combination of behavioural and functional neuroimaging research methods. My research work has followed three lines of enquiry:

  • Investigating the functional organisation of the normal language system, with particular attention to language comprehension.
  • Investigating compensatory processes engaged in the healthy brain when language processing is difficult.
  • Investigating changes in the organisation of the language system following brain lesions such as aphasic stroke and the neural changes that contribute to functional recovery from aphasia.

Current and planned research centres on investigation of higher-order aspects of language comprehension, such as ambiguity resolution and inference-making, in healthy and aphasic populations.
