I completed my PhD in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience in 2009 at University College London, UK. My thesis investigated auditory processing skills and their relationship with speech processing and language ability in young adults with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) and Dyslexia.

Since my PhD, I have been working as a teaching fellow and a postdoctoral Research Associate in various institutions in the UK.

Currently I am a Senior Research Fellow at Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences at UCL.

Research Summary

My research activities are multidisciplinary ranging from neural underpinnings of speech and language disorders to age-related changes in the speech production system of healthy-aged older adults.  The overarching theme is to gain better understanding how speech and language processing changes across the lifespan and what processes are affected in some of the most common language disorders (such as dyslexia and developmental language disorder, DLD), or as a consequence of hearing loss.
