Research Summary

I am interested in the brain mechanisms that enable people to communicate using speech. I am especially interested in multisensory and sensorimotor interaction in speech perception. My research focuses on neural basis of hearing and seeing speech (i.e. “lipreading”) and audiovisual speech integration. 

My current MRC-funded research project titled “Imaging sensorimotor interactions during speech communication” started in January 2011. During this project we examine how interacting motor and sensory brain regions support speech perception and production in fluent speakers and in people who stutter. We are also investigating whether brain stimulation can enhance effects of training on speech skills.
