Welcome to my webpage! I am a Reader in Experimental Pragmatics at the University of Cambridge.
My job title might confuse a few people. 'Experimental Pragmatics' is an emerging discipline which employs paradigms from psychological research in order to inform theoretical linguistic inquiry. My particular focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, and in language learning by monolingual and bilingual children as well as children with Specific Language Impairment and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I am also Director of Studies for Linguistics at Trinity College, Cambridge. If you are a secondary school student interested in Linguistics, do consider to take part in our annual Essay Prize competition.

I enjoy taking part in public engagement events and explaining why linguistics is a fascinating topic. It is also important to communicate research findings to the professionals that can make best use of them in practice, in education and mental health - something that my colleagues and I do thanks to the Cambridge Bilingualism Network.
