My research is primarily situated in studies of language variation and corpus linguistics. I utilize computational, interdisciplinary and corpus-based methods to analyze variation in English over time through the present day. In particular, my dissertation is focused on how health, health problems, and health-related technology are expressed, discussed, and understood through language patterns and discourses. This is analyzed in different datasets of health-related texts, starting with the Early Modern period in English through the present day, in press, social media, and other text types.
