Research Interests

My broad research interests cover corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, pragmatics, and the study of computer-mediated communication. In my PhD project at Lancaster University, I analysed the discourses around trolling in the comment threads of British and Hungarian political blogs, focusing on the actions, aims, and motives that users associate with perceived trolling. My postdoctoral project at the Aston Institute for Forensic Linguistics looks at the extent to which trolling accusations might indicate the presence of potential criminal behaviour, such as hate speech or harassment, from the accused trolls’ part in British and Hungarian online political discussions.
