Previously I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Language and Brain Laboratory and Fulford Junior Research Fellow of Somerville College.  

I am interested in many aspects of phonology ranging from diachronic development, the phonology-morphology interface, speech processing and lexical representation.

To date I have been working with the phonology of North and West Germanic languages and more recently through the ERC WORDS project with Bengali.
