Research Interests: I am interested in word retrieval deficits in people with aphasia (an acquired speech and language disorder which most commonly results from a stroke). To examine this I work with unimpaired speakers and people with aphasia to see what can help improve word retrieval. I am part of an international programme called IDEALAB (International Doctorate in Experimental Approaches to Language and Brain) and although I am based in Newcastle currently, I will also spend time at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Supervisors: Julie Morris and Janet Webster (Newcastle); Lyndsey Nickels (Macquarie)
