Poppy Plumb

PhD student


I am a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University. My research combines corpus linguistics and critical discourse analysis to examine online discourses of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). As a researcher with lived experience of OCD, I am also interested in how participatory research and mad research can be triangulated with corpus-assisted CDA in health communication.

Further information about my research can be found in this talk presented at the 2021 OCD in Society conference.

Outside of my research, I am employed as an associate lecturer and corpus annotator in the deparment, as well as my role as a Senior Academic Writing Mentor in Lancaster University's Management School. I also co-organise the health and linguistics student research group (HeaLing).
