Research Interests

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Aston Institute for Forensic Linguistics (AIFL). My current project investigates linguistic performances of power and persuasion in online criminal interactions.

In addition to my current work in forensic linguistics, I also specialise in the interdisciplinary analysis of historical texts (using theories and methods from historical linguistics, manuscript studies, queenship studies, medieval and early modern literature, and digitial humanities). From 2019-2020, I was a postdoctoral research fellow for the Society for Renaissance Studies. During this fellowship, I worked on an edition of the holograph correspondence of Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots (1489-1541) (under contract with Camden Fifth Series, CUP).

I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield in 2019. My thesis is entitled 'sche sche that schuld be medyatryce In thyr matars’:Performances of Mediation in the Letters of Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots (1489-1541). My PhD project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
