    Personal profile


    I completed my PhD in Psychology in 2014 at Lancaster University on the topic of sleep and language acquisition. I then worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Lancaster University (2014-2017) and at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, Netherlands (2017-2021).

    I joined Edge Hill University as a Senior Lecturer in July 2021.

    My expertise lies in cognition and cognitive development, with a special interest in language acquisition and statistical learning.

    Research Interests

    My research investigates the cognitive mechanisms that support language acquisition, and examines the way these develop in children. I am particularly interested in the way that learners draw on patterns of information in the world around them (statistical learning). I am also interested in the way that learning is supported by sleep​.

    PSY4107: Developmental Psychology (Module Leader)
