I joined the Centre for Information Management in 2014, following several years of working in the Speech Technology industry. I hold an MSc in Forensic Speech Science from the University of York and an MA(hons.) in English and Linguistics from the University of Aberdeen. I have also been teaching on Research Methods modules and supervising postgraduate dissertations at the University of Northampton since 2013.

In my spare time I train for long-distance open water swimming events and the occasional triathlon. I am also a keen musician (folk & americana) and play a number of string instruments.
