 I am a DPhil student in the Speech & Brain Research Group, supervised by Prof Kate Watkins and Prof Charlotte Stagg (head of Physiological Neuroimaging Group)

I am interested in the brain mechanisms underlying speech perception and production. I am especially interested in multisensory and sensorimotor interaction in speech perception. My current research is focused on the role of motor cortex on musical and lexical tone perceptions of both tonal and non-tonal language speakers.  I use a mixture of non-invasive brain stimulation and recording techniques to study this, including TMS ( (transcranial magnetic stimulation)) and EEG (electroencephalography).  Another strand of my research involves studying sensorimotor adaptation in speech production.
