Dr Luke Collins

Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

My interests are in corpus linguistics and its application to online discourse and health communication. I am also interested in media representations and public understanding of science, often combining corpus linguistics with other forms of (critical) discourse analysis.

I am a Senior Research Associate in the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) within the Department of Linguistics and English Language and am working on a study of voice-hearing, analysing data from those who experience hearing voices and how this is represented in the media.
