My current research focuses on the internet and social media, particularly in relation to online multilingualism, and contemporary and archived web content produced by and for migrant communities. My research draws on a range of methods and approaches such as digital discourse analysis and digital ethnography, and sits at the intersection of fields including digital humanities, applied and sociolinguistics, and translation and cultural studies. While my primary focus and expertise is in relation to Spanish- and Italian-speaking communities and contexts, I have a broader interest in cross-languages digital research and am joint editor of the Digital Modern Languages section of Modern Languages Open.

PhD Supervision

I am currently supervising a PhD on archiving social media, and also provide postgraduate research training on qualitative and online research methods, including digital discourse analysis and digital ethnography. I would be interested in supervising social media and internet research, with a particular emphasis on themes including online multilingualism, born-digital cultural heritage, and migration and diasporic digital cultures. While my own expertise is in relation to Latin American, Spanish and Italian cultures and communities, I am interested in co-supervising digital research in relation to other linguistic and cultural contexts, and in particular research that addresses multilingualism in the Digital Humanities.
