About me

I'm co-director of the Masters course in English Language and Linguistics, which provides a wide-ranging and extensive programme centered on the English language, covering both theoretical approaches to linguistics and their application in a broader context. I also teach undergraduate courses on Language and Society, Foundations of Language, Language and the Brain, and the History of the English Language.

I was heavily involved in organising many of the Evolution of Language conferences, and have edited three of the collections produced from them, as well as the most recent New Reflections on Grammaticalisation conference.

Before joining Stirling, I worked on a number of research projects at the University of Edinburgh, where I also carried out my doctoral work on the evolution of language under the supervision of Jim Hurford and Simon Kirby.
