Sam Kirkham supervises 1 postgraduate research students. Some of the students have produced research profiles, these are listed below:
I carry out research in phonetics and sociolinguistics. I am interested in the social meaning of phonetic variation, and acoustic-articulatory variation in accents of English. I have recently worked on projects investigating phonetic variation, ethnicity and social class amongst adolescents in Sheffield; ultrasound tongue imaging of /l/ and /r/ in Bradford Asian English; and intonational variation in the north west of England.
I would be happy to receive applications in the areas of sociophonetics, sociolinguistics, acoustic and articulatory phonetics, and language variation and change. Lancaster also has a well-equipped Phonetics Lab with facilities for acoustic analysis, speech perception, and articulatory measurement (including electromagnetic articulography, ultrasound, electropalatography, aerodynamics). The Phonetics Lab facilities are available for use by PhD students in sociophonetics/phonetics.
I joined Lancaster as Lecturer in Sociophonetics in 2012. I'm a member of Lancaster University Phonetics Lab and the Language Variation and Change Research Group, as well as the NCUB's 50 Under 30 Network. Visit my personal website for further information and downloads.
