Dr Luke CollinsSenior Research Associate
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.
PhD Supervision Interests
I am interested in supervising students in the following areas: Corpus linguistics: particularly the applications to new media (for example, online communication). Science and health communication: particularly media representations of health and illness or complex global issues (such as climate change, AMR), as well as language used in interaction to discuss health issues, particularly those that can be analysed using corpus linguistics and/or discourse analysis.
