Profile

I have recently joined the department in Autumn 2019. My main research areas are language, gender, and sexuality.  I am interested in how people might use phonetic features to construct certain qualities about themselves. I am currently investigating how female speakers from Yorkshire may index concepts like gender and sexual orientation through voice qualities, and I am also interested to learn if listeners perceive certain qualities based on voice alone. Generally, I am interested in many topics in sociolinguistics and sociophonetics, and how language use varies between individuals and communities.
