Dr. Helen Breadmore

In 2008 Helen was awarded a PhD by the University of Birmingham for work on profoundly deaf children's use of inflectional morphology in reading and spelling, under the supervision of Dr Andrew Olson and Dr Andrea Krott. Helen then worked at the University of Birmingham as a Research Associate for Dr Andrea Krott on a project examining EEG responses to morphological processing. In 2010 Helen was awarded an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship during which she examined awareness of number marking during reading and trained in eye-tracking with Professor Antje Meyer. Helen moved to the University of Warwick in 2012 to work with Dr Julia Carroll as named Research Fellow and co-investigator on projects examining reading and spelling development amongst children with dyslexia, a history of repeated ear infection and profoundly deaf children. Helen joined Coventry University in 2014.
