Personal profile

Biography

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Macquarie University Child Language Lab exploring children's acquisition of inflectional morphology and the factors affecting this process, such as hearing loss or Developmental Language Disorder. My PhD thesis 'Children's Gradual Acquisition of Singular and Plural' explored children’s understanding of the English plural.
