I am an independent scholar and translator, editor and writer, with a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Cambridge.
I was born and raised in Australia but have lived in Europe – Germany, the Netherlands and the UK – since 2005. I obtained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2014 and have been based in Amsterdam since 2015.
My research focuses on the areas of sociolinguistics and corpus linguistics. I’m interested in language variation and change, the sociolinguistics of globalisation, World Englishes, English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), quantitative corpus linguistics and constructional theories of language. I do incidental reviewing for journals such as Multilingual and Multicultural Development, World Englishes and the International Journal of Learner Corpus Research.
