Research Interests

Research fields:

  • Linguistics
  • Discourse Analysis
  • Stylistics
  • Pragmatics
  • Literary Translation

I am interested in rhetoric and creativity in language use and language online is rich for such study. For instance, I have involved collected and analysed online memes, to better understand the genre, the rules and rhetorical styles used, as well as what makes a ‘successful’ meme. I am also interested in fake news and, more generally, how the online realm changes the dynamic of interaction and discourse.

My linguistic research is mostly qualitative, but sometimes I use Corpus Linguistics tools and software to analyse large quantities of digitised textual data. I have also been involved in research projects which have created data visualisations of discourse.

My digital interests are in:

  • Corpus Linguistics (AntConc, Matrix, BNCWeb, LancsBox)
  • Qualitative Analysis (Nvivo, Atlas.ti)
  • Mapping (Visual Understanding Environment)
