I study how human brains produce and perceive sound. Understanding the interplay between sound and movement systems enriches our understanding of how humans learn to speak or produce music. My specific area of expertise is how individual differences in our ability to control movement interact with sound perception and production abilities. I am particularly interested in how learning and development influence such interactions, and have worked with young children as well as experts (beatboxers and guitarists) to address these questions. Currently, I am involved in a MRC-funded randomised controlled trial to enhance fluency for stammering/ stuttering, a speech disorder where sensorimotor interactions are affected. I am leading the fMRI analyses on this project.
