Research Interests

My teaching specialties lie in discourse analysis and newspaper English. However I teach on a broad range of courses covering English for MS students, PhD English writing and PhD English listening, etc.

I am especially interested in discourse analysis and corpus linguistics, discourse and ideology, discourse and social variation and cross-cultural pragmatics.
