I am psycholinguist, primarily interested in the development of language in both typical and atypical children. My PhD considered the co-development of speech and gesture in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My current research interests include the role gesture has in facilitating comprehension in young children; gestural and language processing, particularly in the context of a second language, and the role of gesture as a compensatory strategy in atypical populations such as children with Specific Language Impairment and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
