I am a PhD student working under the supervision of Dr Miriam Koschate-Reis, Professor Mark Levine and Professor Richard Everson. My research is interdisciplinary in nature, combining computer science methodologies with social psychological theories.

Broad research specialisms:

My research utilizes linguistic style data collected from online sources in order to understand the development and trajectories of particular social identities. It seeks to understand how we can utilize natural language processing and machine learning algorithms to gain insight into identity shifts and better understand individuals’ journeys into and out of particular social identities. My research works closely with the National Crime Agency and thus the identities that I am most interested in are those of a criminal nature.
