Teaching Associate in Linguistics and Professional Communication, Faculty of Arts
I hold an MA in Applied Linguistics and Intercultural Communication from the University of Essex and a PhD from the University of Nottingham.

Since January 2016, I have been working on an ESRC-funded project titled Simulating Medical Talk. This project on health communication investigates the communicative aspects of contemporary clinical examinations and the training of postgraduate doctors.
My research interests are mainly in the area of workplace communication and I am particularly interested in exploring the interdependency between communicating about work and attending to the relational aspect of this communication. This also formed the basis of my thesis which explored workplace communication from the perspectives of sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and ethnography.
During the course of my doctoral studies, I also worked on two University-funded projects on leadership communication. The Linguistic Profiling projects, headed by Dr Louise Mullany, involved the delivery of research-based training and consultancy which was based on the analysis of spoken and written interaction including meeting data and online discourse.
