PhD supervision

I would be happy to receive applications in the areas of sociolinguistics, phonetics, sociophonetics, language variation and change, ethnography, linguistic anthropology.


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. I'm also a member of the NCUB's 50 Under 30 Network. Visit my personal website for further information and downloads.

I work in the areas of sociophonetics, sociolinguistics, laboratory phonology, and linguistic anthropology. My PhD was a sociophonetic ethnography of language and identity in a multiethnic community in Sheffield, UK. I'm particularly interested in language and ethnicity in urban contexts.
