About Me

My work and teaching often crosses the boundaries between English Language and Criminology, focusing on the use of language to express, maintain and reinforce (capitalist) power structures, using corpus-assisted critical discourse analysis and critical stylistics to examine this language.

I completed my PhD in English Language at the University of Leeds in 2017. I analysed the portrayal of corporate fraud by British newspapers, using corpus-assisted critical discourse analysis to do so.

I have recently worked as a research assistant on a PaCCS-funded project examining representations of human trafficking in British newspapers.

I also hold an MSc in Criminology from the University of Leicester and am a co-founder of the Poetics and Linguistics Association Special Interest Group on Crime Writing.
