Anne Dwyer 2


Anne joined the MARCS team in 2010 as a research assistant in the MARCS BabyLab, and she completed her PhD in MARCS in 2017. Her PhD thesis examined the home language environments of young infants through the period when they were learning to talk, to find out how language experiences at home differed amongst young infants from varying family backgrounds, and how those differences were related to later language development. Anne’s current research interests centre around supporting early child language development.


Anne is currently a research officer at MARCS. She works with Associate Professor Caroline Jones in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language on projects focused on supporting children's language outcomes, and how north Australian Kriol is learned by infants and young children in natural home contexts.

Anne is also involved in Sydney Speaks – a project modelling variation and change in the pronunciation of English varieties spoken in Sydney, Australia.
