  1. University of Southampton, UK


I am a postgraduate researcher of L2 phonetics and phonology at the University of Southampton in the UK. Specifically, I am working on speech plasticity in “late” learners of foreign languages and the relationship between perception and production. My PhD analyses data drawn from 43 English learners of French before and after their year abroad in a French speaking country, employing both acoustic measurements for production and eye-tracking data for perception. From January to the end of March, I am visiting Penn State and working alongside the graduate assistants in Burrowes 47. If you would like to meet or chat, either pop into the office or send me an email at I look forward to meeting you!
