Research Interests

My main research interests are in phonetics, sociolinguistics and sociophonetics. I am particularly interested in accents of English - specifically how people's attitudes to accents differ, how they perceive phonetic features and how this relates to their own speech production.

I am also interested in language variation and change more generally, including grammatical variation, dialectology and folk linguistics.
