I am Senior 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 convenor of Linguistics and Applied Linguistics (undergraduate) and Study Abroad co-ordinator for Linguistics and Applied Linguistics.
