Research Summary

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Professor Jenni Rodd on an ESRC-funded project investigating the factors that lead to high-quality lexical-semantic knowledge.


My previous research investigated how we learn new vocabulary through reading, and the different factors that can affect this process, such as the amount of exposure, spelling-to-sound mappings, and previous language experience. My PhD research examined incidental learning of new meanings for familiar words using web-based language learning experiments.


In my previous role I worked on a project funded by Aston University investigating the relationship between reading and vocabulary learning. Another project I have recently worked on focused on adults with low literacy. The project examined whether phonics courses can improve parents’ reading-related skills and ability to support their children’s reading.
