Research Fellow, Faculty of Arts
I am a Research Fellow in the Linguistic Profiling for Professionals (LiPP) unit within the Centre for Research in Applied Linguistics (CRAL). My research sits at the interface of discourse and social life, in particular the way people communicate about health and illness, which I examine using corpus linguistic, critical and multimodal approaches to discourse analysis. In 2016 I completed my ESRC-funded PhD, which explores the way people communicate about a contested eating disorder called diabulimia. During the final year of my doctoral study, I worked as Senior Research Associate in the Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science at Lancaster University, examining patient feedback on health care services and reporting findings to NHS England and the UK Care Quality Commission. Since 2012 I have been the Assistant Editor of the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics, published by John Benjamins.
I am affiliated to a number of research centres and groups across the University, including the Health Language Research Group (HLRG), Nottingham Health Humanities, and the Mental Health Discourse group (Centre for Social Futures, Institute of Mental Health). Outside of the University of the Nottingham, I am a member of the International Health Humanities Network, BAAL (The British Association for Applied Linguists), PALA (Poetics and Linguistics Association) and the BAAL special interest groups, Corpus Linguistics and Health and Science Communication.
