Dr Gisela Tomé Lourido


I joined the Universtiy of Leeds in 2017 after completing an MA in Phonetics and a PhD in Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences at University College London (UCL). Before specialising in Phonetics I obtained an undergraduate degree in English Studies (Filoloxía Inglesa) and an MA in Education (Mestrado Universitario de Profesorado) at Universidade da Coruña, in Galicia. 


  • Admissions Tutor for Linguistics and Phonetics

Research interests

My research interests are in accent variation in speech perception and production in bilingual and monolingual populations. I have mainly worked on Galician and English.

My current research uses eye-tracking and other behavioural methods to investigate how accent variation affects speech processing.
