Research overview

My PhD-project is an investigation into metaphor in communication about menopause in the US and Denmark from a critical discourse studies perspective.

I also support the data sharing initiative #ReframeCovid and am interested in metaphors in relation to health in general.

The network of metaphor researchers in Scandinavian languages is a forum that connects me tometaphor enthusiasts in the Nordic countries and there are many interesting blogposts about metaphor on https://www.metnetscandinavia.com/

My MA dissertation focused on how the relationship between the doctor and patient was represented in the patient information leaflet for medicines in England. The corpus consists of package leaflets for pharmaceutical prescription drugs.
