Biography

I am a speech and language therapist with clinical experience working with adults with dysphagia and with a range of acquired communication and voice disorders.

In 2017-18 I successfully completed the NIHR/HEE Integrated Clinical Academic Internships (North) scheme on the topic of age-related hearing disability and post-stroke aphasia. I was supervised by Dr Paul Conroy (University of Manchester).
I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the RCSLT Neurorehabilitation North West CEN. I am registered to practise as a speech and language therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Previously, I completed my MMedSci at the University of Sheffield, where I was awarded the Enderby Prize, and my undergraduate degree at the University of Durham.

Current research

My PhD project is funded by the Alzheimer’s Society and commenced in October 2018. It evaluates an adaptation of constraint-induced aphasia therapy for people with dementia who have word-finding difficulties.
