I'm Lecturer in Sociophonetics at Lancaster University, based in the Department of Linguistics and English Language and Lancaster University Phonetics Lab. I was awarded my PhD in 2014 from the University of Sheffield.
I do research in phonetics and sociolinguistics. I am interested in topics such as:
- Phonetics of bilingualism and language contact
- Social meanings of linguistic variation
- Articulatory sociophonetics
- Variationist sociolinguistics
My work draws upon a range of methods, including acoustic analysis, ultrasound tongue imaging, variationist and interactional sociolinguistics, laboratory research, and ethnographic fieldwork.
