About me

I am a Senior Lecturer on UWE's English Langua​ge and Linguistics programme. For the 2018/19 academic year, I am teaching and leading various modules, including: Constructing Languages (morphosyntax); Analysing Culture - Language and the Visual (intercultural communication and critical discourse analysis); Language, Research and the Workplace (research methods and statistics); and English - Past, Present and Future (general linguistics).

I am also working on a small-scale research project investigating multimodal cues found in spoken and signed communication. This work adds to various on-going projects, including my doctoral research on analysing British Sign Language using Systemic Functional Linguistics, understanding how discourse coheres multimodally, and the multimodal realisation of the concept of 'persuasion.'

I am also collaborating with staff across the ACE faculty invesitgating D/deaf filmmaking and script writing, observing the linguistic, contextual and practical aspects of sign language users in a predominantly hearing/spoken langauge environment.

I am happy to collaborate on topics focusing specifically on langauges and linguistics, and on more interdisciplinary concerns. I can be contacted in English, Spanish, French, Japanese, or British Sign Language. More information can be found on my personal website.​

Area of expertise

- Non-verbal and multimodal communication (including sign languages and gesture)
