Professor of Linguistics and Head of School of Languages and Cultures, The University of Queensland

I am currently Head of the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Queensland. My research focuses on the role of language in social interaction. I have a particular interest in interpersonal aspects of communication in different languages, and what remains unsaid but nevertheless understood in communicative interaction.
