PhD supervision

I regret that I cannot accept any new PhD students before October 2016.

Current Teaching

I currently teach on the following courses:

Discourse Analysis (LING 204)

Corporate Communication (LING 214)

Introduction to Discourse Studies (LING 442)

Discourse Analysis (LING 519)


I received my PhD in English Linguistics from the University of Vienna in 2003 (thesis on metaphors in business magazines). Before joining Lancaster University in 2004, I worked at the Department of English Business Communication at Vienna University of Economics and Business and also as assistant marketing manager at a medium-sized company in Vienna. I do occasional language consulting work for private and third sector clients.

Research Interests

In general, my research is in the area of cognitive critical discourse analysis, with a focus on analysing identity work in discourse. I have done research on corporate discourse and health communication in the public, private and third sectors, as well as on language and sexuality. A special research interest of mine is metaphor theory and analysis.

I am keen to develop and strengthen interdisciplinary links with researchers in the area of healthcare.
