I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge, working on learner corpus research for the ALTA Institute and based in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics (DTAL). I’m a member of the Computational Linguistics Research Cluster and the Cambridge Language Sciences Strategic Initiative.
I’ve been here since October 2013, having previously worked in Literature Services at the European Bioinformatics Institute, carried out research for English Profile, and studied for a PhD in what was the Research Centre for English & Applied Linguistics (now merged into DTAL) from 2006 to 2010.
You can find out more about my research, teaching and outreach activities by exploring the rest of my site. And if your curiosity knows no bounds, you can also visit the webpages of my boss, Dr Paula Buttery, and my office-mates: Russell Moore and Calbert Graham.
