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 individuals who identify as LGBT, solo, and/or adoptive parents. I recently published my first monograph: Language, Gender and Parenthood Online.

I served on the working party for updating the BAAL Recommendations on Good Practice in Applied Linguistics in 2016. I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2016.
