PhD student, Associate Lecturer


I specialize in the application of corpus linguistic methods to historical English-language datasets. I am particularly interested in efforts to achieve parity between the technologies available to researchers working with present-day corpora and those working historically and diachronically. My current research investigates how corpus methodologies can be used to assess quantitatively the impact of prescriptivism, and how discourse analytic corpus methods can be applied historically. In the past, I have also conducted and contributed to research in the fields of corpus-based pragmatics and corpus-based semantics, and I was Research Associate on the AHRC-ESRC SAMUELs Project between 2014 and 2015.
