Research overview

I am a PhD Student in the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social ScienceMy main research interests are phraseology, corpus linguistics and language testing. My thesis project focuses on the intersection of these three areas as I work with Trinity College London, a major language examination board, using corpus methods to help inform language testing 

I am contributing to the building of the Trinity Lancaster L1 Corpus, the parallel L1 counterpart to the Trinity Lancaster Corpus, a 4.2-million-word learner corpus of interactional spoken English of examiners and candidates. 

I am a member of SLLAT, LTRG and Trinity Research Groups.
