Research Fellow in English and Applied Linguistics, University of Birmingham

I am a cognitive linguist, currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow on the ESRC-funded project ‘Death Before Birth’.

This project explores socio-legal intersections of decision-making processes in the experiences of miscarriage, termination, and stillbirth and investigates the ways in which the bereaved communicate their choices to those around them, with a particular focus on their use of metaphor and metonymy.
