Potential areas for collaboration: See section on current projects – I’m open to collaboration in these sorts of areas. I’m also open to collaborations in animal studies where close text analysis and/or corpus linguistic techniques could be helpful. My other research context is medical discourse. Projects which combine a focus on public health, clinical communication and/or psychotherapeutic discourse with forwarding the interests of animals could also be areas for collaboration.
