Research Summary

My research focuses on the process of word retrieval in normal speakers, and in speakers with acquired neurogenic language disorders (particularly aphasia). I am interested in exploring the factors which make words easier or harder to retrieve, and how these factors influence the production of speech errors. To investigate these questions, I use a combination of behavioural experimentation and computational modelling approaches
