Research Overview

I am PhD Student in the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science, based within the Department of Linguistics and English Language. My PhD research currently focuses on the application of corpus methods to verbal lie detection, investigating the extent to which these cues to deception differ across sociolinguistic groups.

I am also involved with the Encyclopaedia of Shakespeare's Language project, and the compilation of the Written British National Corpus 2014.
