My research examines discourses of migration, impoliteness (including microaggressions), EU migrants in the UK, historical linguistics, corpus linguistics (grammar and semantics). I am also interested in semiotics and multimodality, having previously researched medical animations. As of current, I am researching the semantic/lexical field of citizenship in Early Modern English in collaboration with Victorina Gonzalez-Diaz and Ursula Kania (University of Liverpool). Recent research with Jessica Iubini-Hampton, Mariana Roccia and Djordje Sredanovic also centres on (privileged) European migration in the UK and the “Brain Drain”, with an output in progress.
