Why Study here?
I chose London, not only due to the fact that it is a very cosmopolitan city, but also for its well known reputation in this area: More>>

For my PhD project, I am investigating speech misperception in its most naturalistic form, namely slips of the ear, particularly with English and Chinese languages. I am approaching it statistically, computationally and experimentally. This project covers also a range of areas, such as corpus collection and compilation, psycholinguistics, speech segmentation, constrain models of diachrony with synchronic data and more.
I hold a BA and an
MEng in Engineering at the University of Cambridge as well as an MA in
Linguistics from University College London.
My PhD project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
I am a member and an organiser of a lab group, Laboratory for Language and Speech Diversions (LLSD).
