I’m Hannah – by day, a Lecturer in Phonetics and Phonology at the University of Newcastle, specialising in the accent and dialect of Stoke-on-Trent and its pottery industry. By night, collector of crafty hobbies and all-round enthusiast.

This website acts as a one-stop-shop for my academic work and profile, personal bio and blog, and craft-based side projects – please use the navigation links at the side of the page to explore.

If you would like to get in touch (including media enquiries), feel free to email me on hannah [dot] leach [at] newcastle [dot] ac [dot] uk*, or find me on twitter @hm_leach.

*I still have access to hannah [dot] leach [at] sheffield [dot] ac [dot] uk, but will likely be checking it with less frequency.
