PhD student, Associate Lecturer

Research Overview

My main area of interest is the representation of gender and sexuality. I am particularly interested in using corpus linguistic approaches to explore representations. Although my PhD focuses on the representation of gender in video games, I am also interested in the representation of gender and sexuality in British media in a more general sense and in large reference corpora. I am also interested in Critical Discourse Analysis, Metaphor, Metonymy, and applications of these fields to language, gender, and sexuality studies.

I am currently the secretary for the British Assosiation of Applied Linguist's Language, Gender, and Sexuality Special Interest Group (BAAL's LGaS Sig).
