I am Senior Lecturer in English language at the Department of English & History, Edge Hill University. I have worked in corpus linguistics since 2001; previously, I worked in applied linguistics (TESOL) and language teacher education (1992-2001), and English language teaching (1984-1993). 

My general research interests are in the use and development of corpus approaches to issues in descriptive, theoretical and applied linguistics. My research and publications combine the following areas:

Corpus Linguistics: compilation of topic-specific corpora, annotation techniques, metrics.

Grammar: conditionals, modality, tense-aspect, construction grammar, lexical grammar.

Corpora in language education: pedagogical lexicogrammar, analysis of learner language.

Corpus approaches to (critical) discourse studies.

My PhD thesis examined conditionals through the lens of modality, and presented classifications for both. It also proposed a view of conditionals as environments of indeterminacy; that is, constructions with obligatory internal modal marking, whose function is akin to that of linguistic qubits (quantum bits).

My h-index is 4 in Web of Knowledge and Scopus, and 13 in Google Scholar Citations. For Altmetrics, see Impact Story. For publications and presentations on particular areas, see the thematic index.

I am currently compiling a bibliography of studies using corpora and corpus techniques to examine meaning and style in discourse. Contributions and suggestions are more than welcome. I am also moderating, together with Glenn Hadikin, the Corpus Linguistics group on Facebook.
