Welcome to my website

I am a developmental phonologist with a main research interest in the relationship between phonology and the lexicon in the context of language acquisition. I do most of my work in the Edinburgh Laboratory for Language Development (ELfLanD), which is part of the Wee Science consortium of developmental research at Edinburgh.

I am programme director for the MSc in Developmental Linguistics, and teach courses on language acquisition at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Currently I am also Director of Postgraduate Studies for the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences.

I am associate editor for the journal Language Acquisition, and co-editor of the series Edinburgh Advanced Textbooks in Linguistics.
