I am interested in language as a social phenomenon, from the functional description of structure to linguistic ethnography and critical analysis.  I specialise in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), with a particular focus on functional descriptions of Scottish Gaelic at one end of the scale and the Discourses of Sustainability and Community Management at the other.  I am co-editor, with Gerard O’Grady, of the Routledge Handbook of Systemic Functional Linguistics (2017) and have published a monograph on community management and development, Hybrid Voices and Collaborative Change: Contextualising Positive Discourse Analysis (Routledge 2012) and a textbook on discourse analysis, Analysing Power in Language:  A Practical Guide (Routledge 2014). I have taught English in the UK, Europe, North America and Latin America, and have previously held academic posts in the US and the UK.  My most recent academic post before coming to Glasgow in 2019 was Professor of Language and Communication at Cardiff University.
