Research Interests

I am interested in how ultrasound feedback can be used to aid in the acquisition of non-native language sounds, both in speechnd in singing. As well as this work, my research interests include the process of phonological planning in speech production, the links between speech perception and production, and the nature of phonological representation. I also have a longstanding interest in Russian phonetics and phonology.
