I am an experimental psychologist and neuropsychologist who is especially interested in the psychology and neuroscience underlying lipreading (speechreading), and how the face is used in sign language. My projects included Imaging the Deaf Brain, and Perception of movement in autism (with Dr John Swettenham).
My DCAL activities focussed on developing a test for speechreading suitable for Deaf children (TOCS: with Dr. Fiona Kyle), and experimental studies on categorising faces in and out of sign language.
With Laraine Callow (Deafworks), I developed some applications of speechreading for forensic purposes.
