Biography

I am an Associate Professor in the Neuropsychology of Language at the University of Reading, UK. I run the Acquired Brain & Communication Disorders Lab, with my colleagues Dr. Holly Robson & Dr. Arpita Bose.

As well as research and teaching, I work as a Speech & Language Therapist in the Adult Speech & Language Therapy Clinic in the School of Psychology & Clinical Language Sciences. From January 2016 this clinic became part of the local NHS community Adult SLT service, so I work under an honorary contract with the NHS.

I completed a doctorate at University College London (UCL), with Professor Gabriella Vigliocco and then post-doctoral research with Professor Karalyn Patterson at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge, UK. I completed training to be an SLT at UCL between 2008 and 2010, before starting my post at the University of Reading.
