Dr Elli Drake

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 Napier University I get to share my research and career interests with students.  I currently teach Researching Psychology 1, Researching Psychology 3, and Psychology of Child Development.  I also contribute to teaching on Cognitive Psychology 1 and Introduction to Educational Psychology.  I am the Disability and Inclusion Contact for Psychology.  If you’re interested in what I do then please feel welcome to contact me at E.Drake@napier.ac.uk .
