Anji joined the CNE as an RA on the Nuffield Foundation's project Rhythmic Perception, Music and Language. Together with Ruth Cumming, she tested children in schools across East Anglia. On completion of the project Anji worked on the MRC's study into Auditory Processing in Dyslexic Children: Behavioural and Neural Investigations, and from there moved onto the EEF/Wellcome Trust's GraphoGame Rime study in which a specially created computer game is used to help children learn to read by developing their phonological awareness through rhyme analogy.
