Research interests

My research investigates how adults and children learn languages, and how they might differ in their learning. One area I am particularly interested in finding out how people learn to perceive and produce the speech of second or foreign languages, and what factors might be involved in improving this learning. I am also passionate about teaching and pedagogical research, particularly relating to the teaching of research methods and academic writing, as well as methods to improve equality and diversity in higher education.
