Areas of expertise I am a research speech and language therapist with a special interest in how children develop their speech skills and what happens when children's speech doesn't develop as it should. I have worked with the ALSPAC dataset for many years and I am now leading on the collection of speech and language data for the UK Cleft Collective Gene Bank study.
