Phontetics, sociophonetics, speech production, accent variation

PhD Supervision Interests

I would be happy to receive applications in the areas of phonetics, sociophonetics, language variation and change, speech production, sociolinguistics, and other related areas. I am also happy to co-supervise on topics relating to speech processing/technology with colleagues from the School of Computing & Communications.

Profile

I joined Lancaster as Lecturer in Sociophonetics in 2012. I'm a member of Lancaster University Phonetics Lab and the Language Variation and Change Research Group, as well as the NCUB's 50 Under 30 Network. Visit my personal website for further information and downloads.

I work in the areas of phonetics, sociolinguistics, laboratory phonology, and language variation and change. My research focuses on phonetic variation, mainly in the areas of speech production and sociophonetics.
