I am currently working on my PhD in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York. My main research area is phonological development, and my PhD focuses on the role that onomatopoeia might play in first language acquisition.
My areas of interest include early cognitive development, eye-tracking, phonological templates and Dynamic Systems Theory.
