Research Interests

  • Speech, language and communication in TBI
  • Speech, language and communication in dementia

Research Project

My PhD study will use conversation analysis techniques to investigate which conversation behaviours facilitate successful communication between people with frontotemporal dementia or traumatic brain injury and their family members and which behaviours impede communication. I will also consider whether there are similarities in the ways the two groups communicate.
