I am a second-year PhD student using corpus-assisted critical discourse analysis (CADS) to explore constructions of British and European identities in government documents, pro-Brexit newspapers, and interviews with Nottinghamshire residents. I am a Learning Community Forum representative for second-year PhD students in the School of English, a peer mentor to MA students in the School, and the Issue Management Editor for Issue 5 of the Faculty of Art's Journal of Languages, Texts and Society. I am also a student committee member for the Linguistics Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (LAGB), and the co-organiser of the Discourse and Politics Seminar Series.
My research interests include:
Critical discourse analysis
Identities (particularly national, migrant, political)
Stories in oral interviews
