Research interests

My research concerns the neural and behavioural aspects of human vocal communication. Themes include: speech perception and perceptual learning (and individual differences in these processes), audiovisual speech, voice identity processing, perception and production of emotional vocalizations, social cues in spoken communication. Techniques include fMRI, MEG and behavioural testing.
