Senior Lecturer in English Language

I am Senior Lecturer in English Language at Birmingham City University (BCU). I hold several academic leadership positions in this role, including Associate Director of Research and Research Degrees Coordinator in BCU’s School of English, and Institute Lead for Enterprise and Employability within the Birmingham Institute of Media and English (BIME). Before joining BCU, I held several research positions at Lancaster University within the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) and School of Computing & Communications, as well as the position of Research Fellow at the WMG Cyber Security Centre, The University of Warwick. I gained an ESRC-funded PhD in Applied Linguistics from Lancaster University for my thesis ‘The representation of same-sex parents in children’s picturebooks: a corpus-assisted multimodal critical discourse analysis’, which examined multimodal discourses in a large collection of children’s picturebooks.

I am an active researcher with expertise in computational approaches to the collection and analysis of large (typically online) linguistic datasets. I am well-versed in online data collection (e.g. ‘web scraping’), modelling, analysis, and visualisation using the Python and R programming languages and am deeply interested in how these skills can facilitate innovative, multimethodological approaches to the analysis of large linguistic and multimodal datasets.
