I use psychophysics and noninvasive brain stimulation to study the neural basis of speech and language. I am particularly interested in how the brain learns to perceive and produce new speech sounds.
Before joining the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford, I completed a PhD in Psychology at McGill University and a BSc in Physics, Math and Psychology at Bishop's University.
