Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in the Master of Speech and Language Pathology (MSLP) program. Most of my research and teaching concern speech and language development and disorders in children. I am particularly interested in speech and language disorders in bilingual children; and improving our assessment and treatment practices for children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. I am also interested in service access and experience for migrants with communication disorders; and contributing knowledge to providing equitable speech-language pathology services for people with communication disorders. You can read more about my current research projects here.
