I am a doctoral researcher in Linguistics at the Department of Linguistics and English Language.
My main research interests are corpus linguistics, data visualisation, collocations, corpus tool development and experimental psycholinguistics.
My PhD research explores the similarities and differences in the organisation and underlying structure of the mental lexicon as compared to everyday (communicative) language; I am using quantitative approaches and graph theory to explore this relationship. The development of a tool for large-scale collocation visualisation is also part of my current research. 

I am also a member of a number of research groups such as UCREL, DisTex and the Trinity Research group.
