About me

This is me

I am an early career researcher, with interest in developmental psycholinguistics and observational methods in developmental psychology. I am currently studying parent-child interaction and individual differences in the language development of children with Down Syndrome.

I am particularly interested in the use of eye-tracking as a window to early language development in developmental disorders and the use of machine learning to advance developmental and linguistic research. My other areas of interest relate to promoting accessibility and inclusion in further education, particularly in relation to invisible disabilities, mature learners and under-represented socio-economic backgrounds.
