My research focuses on the ways in which the linguistic approach to the study of ideology known as Critical Discourse Analysis has been used to study news texts. I am particularly interested in the philosophical and methodological problems which this approach entails and in developing refinements to CDA which might help to overcome them. I am currently applying various versions of CDA to a corpus of radio news broadcasts in order to assess their relative effectiveness.

This year I am teaching a graduate course in Media Discourse Analysis.
