I came to psychology through working in pubs, then as a care assistant, and then as a Speech and Language Therapist. During my doctoral research, which was supervised by Martin Corley at the University of Edinburgh and Sonja Schaeffler at Queen Margaret University, I used ultrasound imaging of the mouth during speech in order to investigate links between thought and speech. In my teaching at Edinburgh Napier University I get to share my research and career interests with students. I currently teach Researching Psychology 1 and Researching Psychology 3. I also contribute to teaching on Cognitive Psychology 1 and Introduction to Educational Psychology. I act as Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Psychology with Sociology.
