I am a Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Liverpool and a Co-director of the ESRC International Centre for Research in Language and Communicative Development (LuCiD). My research focuses on how children learn grammar and morphology in different languages, and on using computer models to understand how differences in the pattern of errors shown by children learning different languages are related to the characteristics of the language that they are learning.
