I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Group at the University of New South Wales and the Ingham Institute.

As a functional linguist with a special interest in health communication research, I am particularly interested in:

  • exploring how patients and clinicians in different health settings construe and negotiate identity and agency in their interactions and the effect of this on patient outcomes; and
  • developing, implementing, and evaluating health communication interventions with the aim to improve patient outcomes.
