Personal profile

My research is concerned with the relationship between language and identity, particularly in terms of gender and sexuality. It makes use of queer theory, feminist theory, corpus linguistics and (multimodal) critical discourse analysis. I am currently completing an ESRC-funded PhD in Applied Linguistics at the University of Nottingham which examines the construction of normative discourses in online advice texts aimed at lesbian and bisexual women.
