My primary research interests lie in explorations of language, gender, sexuality and parenthood, especially in digital contexts. I am currently working on a British Academy funded project that explores the role of digital media in the lives of marginalised family groups in the UK, focusing on LGBT, solo, and/or adoptive parents. I recently published my first monograph: Language, Gender and Parenthood Online.

I serve on the committee for two special interest groups (SIGs) within the British Association of Applied Linguistics (BAAL). I am Postgraduate and Early Career Liaison Officer for the Language, Gender and SIG, and Treasurer for the Language and New Media SIG. I co-organised several events for these groups, including an online seminar series in 2020/21, and two events at the University of Nottingham, in 2017 and 2019. I have served on conference organising committees for BAAL 2016 and PALA 2018, and working parties for the BAAL Recommendations on Good Practice in Applied Linguistics, in both 2016 and 2020. I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2016.
