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. 

I am affiliated with Child Language Lab (CLL) and Centre for Language Sciences (CLaS) at Macquarie University. Externally, I currently serve as the Editor for the Journal of Clinical Practice in Speech-Language Pathology and an Associate Editor for Speech, Language and Hearing.

Research interests

Current research investigates application of verbal learning and statistical learning in diagnosis of developmental language disorder in bilingual children. Related areas of research include diagnosis and assessment practices in speech-language pathology for bilingual children. You can read more about my research here.


Primary teaching responsibilities include postgraduate units on assessment and intervention for children with speech and language disorders (SPHL829 and SPHL836). I also contribute to undergraduate units including SPH310 Developmental Speech and Language Disorders. 

Research student supervision

I currently supervise internal and external research projects in clinical assessment of language disorders. I welcome queries from prospective students who are interested in pursuing higher degree research in speech and language disorders in children or in clinical assessment and intervention practices in speech-language pathology.
