Profile

I am a Senior University Teacher and the Course Director for the MMedSci in Clinical Communication Studies/Speech & Language Therapy.  My areas of teaching include Motor Speech Disorders, Voice, Dysphagia, Aphasia and Clinical Methods.

I completed a PhD in 2012 which was funded by a Stroke Association Allied Health Professional Research Bursary. My research explored the activation of syntactic information in spoken word production in healthy speakers and the effect of syntactic cues on immediate and long-term word retrieval in aphasia. I have also been involved in research developing accessible information for people with aphasia.

I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2004. Prior to joining the department in 2007, I worked as a clinician with adults with acquired neurological communication and swallowing disorders in Mansfield PCT and Sheffield PCT. I hold an honorary contract with Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Trust. I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapist and the Health Professions Council.
