Research Interests

My research sits at the interface of sociolinguistics, pragmatics and discourse analysis. I am committed to multidisciplinarity and my research interests include workplace interaction (corporate/health); multilingualism, diversity and migration and language and politics. I am co-directing two international research networks, one under the Warwick-Monash alliance on Migration Identity and Translation and one under AILA on Migrants in Working life which have brought together a range of established scholars, Early Career researchers as well as non-academic stakeholders. My current work includes a multidisciplinary project on migration and the labour market as well as an ongoing project on health care interaction.

Biography

I am currently the University-level Academic Director for Education and Internationalisation at the University of Warwick and I serve on the Education Executive. I work in close partnership with academic departments, Warwick's International Students' Office, Student mobility and the Students' Union. I lead on the Internationalisation of Education Strategy and the development of existing and new mobility schemes with strategic partners and on the intercultural experience on- and off-campus. I am a National Teaching Fellow and fully committed to pedagogic innovation and education for global citizenship. I have been appointed as the International Subject Chair for Linguistics, Language, Communication and Media on the Scopus board. I have always been fascinated by language and how we use language to 'do things'. I started my journey as a theoretical linguist interested primarily in syntax. Early in my career as an undergraduate student, however, I had the good fortune to read anthropology and philosophy. Both played an important role in my thinking in different ways. I turned to sociolinguistics and pragmatics. I received my PhD from the University of Essex and upon graduation I moved to Bristol for my first full time job with UWE's Bristol Centre for Linguistics. I spent five rewarding years in Bristol before joining the University of Warwick and the Centre for Applied Linguistics. I have been a visiting scholar in different institutions in New Zealand, Australia and Europe. I am a Visiting Distinguished Professor at Aalto University, School of Business, Finland and a Visiting Professor (Affiliate) at Monash University, Australia. I am the founding editor of the Multilingual Matters' Language at Work series and I am also co-editing Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture for John Benjamins.
