I’m a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics and the School's Director of English, Politics and Contemporary History.
I studied linguistics as an undergraduate at University College London and received a Ph.D. in linguistics from Stanford University in 2009. I’m a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a recipient of the Vice-Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award.
I teach modules in Linguistics and English Language, including:
- Foundations of Language II
- Truth and Meaning
- Corpus Approaches to Language
- Language and Communication
- Current Issues in Pragmatics
My areas of research are semantics, pragmatics, syntax, and their interfaces. In particular, my current research focuses on quantification and exceptives in English. I supervise PhD students working on these areas.
