I am Lecturer in Applied Linguistics in the School of Languages and Linguistics.
My research expertise includes sociolinguistics, second language acquisition, discourse-pragmatic variation, language attitudes and ideologies, and discourse analysis.
I focus in particular on the sociolinguistics of migration and globalization, and am currently researching second dialect acquisition among Irish migrants to Australia.
I am also currently involved in projects on Indian English and Malaysian English, and I lead an interdisciplinary team of researchers in articulatory sociophonetics and language processing, particularly in the context of second language and second dialect speakers.
I am co-ordinator of the Honours program in Linguistics and Appied Linguistics, and am chair of the Faculty of Arts Early Career Academic Committee (https://staff.unimelb.edu.au/arts/committees-leadership-and-governance/committees/early-career-academic-committee).
