Biography

I have held a research and teaching position in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Glasgow since 2009. From 2004-2008, I was Research Associate for the Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech (SCOTS) and, briefly, Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing (CMSW) projects, which created large online corpora of texts in Scottish English and varieties of Scots. Before moving to Glasgow, I was a Teaching Fellow in French at the University of St Andrews, where I also completed my PhD in French linguistics.

I am Director of the Scottish Corpora projects, and on the Advisory Board of the Historical Thesaurus of English.

I am an elected member of the University Senate.

I am currently an Associate Editor for Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, and a Subject Editor (Linguistics) for Forum for Modern Language Studies.

My ORCID ID is orcid.org/0000-0003-3188-4876.

Teaching

I teach on several Honours courses in the English Language and Linguistics subject area: Semantics and Pragmatics, Contemporary Issues in Semantics, Theories of Grammar, and Culture and English Language Teaching. In some years, I also teach the 'Meaning and Mind' and 'Children and Language' components of the Level 1 English Language and Linguistics course.
