Key Research Interests

I am interested in all aspects of communication in adults and children. My recent work has focused on disfluency, both normal non-fluency and disorders of fluency. I have recently completed an NIHR-funded project about treating social anxiety in adults who stutter. I am currently leading an ESRC-funded seminar series about using birth cohort data to inform policy and practice in speech, language and communication. I welcome applications from potential postgraduate research students: I am particularly interested in projects that involve (i) using birth cohort data to invesitgate risk factors and outcomes associated with speech, language and communication difficulties (ii) psychosocial impact of speech, language and communication difficulties and (iii) research participation by people with speech, language and communication difficulties.

Teaching Interests

As Joint Director of the BSc(Hons) Speech & Language Therapy, I shared responsibility with my co-director Karen Bunning for developing the course curriculum for this degree, which took its first cohort of students in September 2004. Karen and I were delighted to be the joint recipients of a Teaching Excellence Award in 2006 for our work on the degree. My teaching particularly focuses on communication and language sciences, psycholinguistics and cognitive aspects of communication. My applied linguistics textbook (McAllister, J. & Miller, J. Introductory Linguistics for Speech and Language Therapy Practice) was published by Wiley Blackwell in 2013
