My research interests relate to aphasia and acquired communication deficits more broadly. Within aphasia, I am specifically interested in naming therapies, verb processing, writing therapies, sentence and discourse therapies. I am interested in the relationship between impairment therapies and functionally significant outcomes, particularly with regard to discourse and conversational data. I was funded by a Stroke Association Allied Health Professional Therapy Research Bursary to complete a PhD on the topic of 'Errorless learning as a treatment applied to verb and sentence impairments in aphasia'. The project was supervised by Professor Matt Lambon Ralph, and Dr Karen Sage, from NARU. Previously, I completed an MSc in Human Communication in 2003 at City University London which was funded by the HSA and the Speech and Language Therapy Department at Kings College Hospital, London; the dissertation for this degree was on the topic of discourse analysis of aphasic narratives.
