Research Interests

My main research interest is sociophonetics. I am particularly interested in accents of English - specifically how people's attitudes to accents differ, how they perceive phonetic features and how this relates to their own speech production.

I am also interested in topics in phonetics, sociolinguistics and language variation and change more generally, including dialectology, folk linguistics, grammatical variation, auditory and acoustic phonetics, and sounds of the world's languages.

I am a member of Lancaster's Phonetics Lab research group.
