Description of Phd:


I am a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) working with people with
aphasia following stroke. I am investigating the effects of specific,
independent, intensive computer-assisted therapy for auditory
comprehension impairments in people with aphasia. I am also
investigating lower level auditory comprehension impairments in
aphasia in more detail by looking at the interaction between
mechanisms underlying sound, phoneme and voice perception. I use a
combination of behavioural (SLT & psychology assessments; novel
listening tasks) and imaging (fMRI, structural MRI & voxel-based
lesion-symptom mapping) methods. Prior to my current research I gained
a BSc. Hons (2:1) in Human Biology from St Andrews in 2006 and then
carried out post-graduate training in Speech & Language Therapy
(distinction) before working as a SLT in an adult acquired brain
injury unit.
