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. In terms of subject matter, my research focuses on the following areas:

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

TESOL: pedagogical lexicogrammar, learner language, learner corpora.

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.
