PhD student, Associate Lecturer

Research Overview

My research interests cover forensic phonetics and sociophonetics. My PhD investigates acoustic features used as a parameter for speaker identification, focussing on how effective they are in distinguishing individual speakers. I am also interested in investigating the limits of intra-speaker variation and the implications of this for forensic casework.
