As of January 2021, I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oslo, working on the interdisciplinary project "Fakespeak – the language of fake news": https://www.hf.uio.no/ilos/english/research/projects/fakespeak

I was a postdoctoral researcher in English Linguistics at Lund University during autumn 2020, having completed my PhD at the same university in 2019. My research centred on spoken language and the combination of social and cognitive processes of meaning-making in English conversation. It aimed to further our understanding of the social motivations and cognitive mechanisms of spoken language production, comprehension and change. To achieve this, I used advanced statistical methods such as regression, and a combination of qualitative and quantitative corpus and experimental techniques.

We are currently in the final stages of compiling the new London–Lund Corpus 2 (LLC–2) of spoken British English.
