I am a sociolinguist broadly interested in sociophonetic variation and change. More specifically, I am interested in combining production and perception methodologies to explore the social meaning of accent features. My PhD explored linguistic variation in West Cornwall, England, with a focus on how rurality influences the progress of sound change in the region. I am currently a Research Associate on the Manchester Voices Project (https://www.manchestervoices.org/) at Manchester Metropolitan University.
