I am a postdoctoral researcher specializing in digital media, discourse analysis, identity construction, gender, and fashion media.
In my PhD thesis titled Communities of Empowerment: Exploring the Discourse Practices of Plus-Size Fashion Bloggers, I investigated the linguistic and discursive construction of community, identity and empowerment in plus-size fashion blogs.
In my future works, I plan to focus on examining the intersections of gender, marginalization and language on different digital media platforms. However, I am also interested in researching the language and discourse of various other social groups and communities (see, for example, my work on radio communication in Formula One racing).
Feel free to have a look around the “About Me” and “Works” sections if any of these topics are of interest to you! Please note that this site will be updated when new research is published, and when my schedule allows it. In the meantime, you can contact me via email or Twitter, or look me up on ResearchGate.
Thank you for visiting!
