My PhD research investigates talker adaptation in dialectal communication. I am developing a new experimental paradigm which combines elements of language comprehension and production. Through this project I aim to understand how conversation partners from different dialectal backgrounds can communicate successfully with one another. I focus particularly on interaction between Scottish dialect users and speakers of so-called 'standard' English.

My secondary interest lies in studying patterns of suicidal behaviour. During my MSc practicum I co-authored a paper investigating the influence of ecological factors on suicide attempts at a local area of interest. I believe strongly in replacing the stigma around suicide with frank, considerate and scientifically informed discussion.
