Personal profile

Research Interests

My research centres around forensic linguistics. I have a variety of research outputs in the field and ample casework experience, both as an expert witness and in policing contexts.

My main research focus is on individual variation in language use with reference to forensic authorship analysis. I am interested in the theoretical underpinnings of the notion of idiolect but I also work on more practical problems around linguistically enabled offender identification.

I also have an interest in interactionally and institutionally engendered communication barriers in the justice system, and in how they can be removed. In particular, I research aspects of interpreting in police interviews and the courtroom.
