I am a blogger and a writer, fascinated by all things language and linguistics. I am particularly interested in linguistic creativity – in prose, in poetry, in the media, in advertising, and in everyday conversation. I have an MA in Applied Linguistics from Birkbeck College, University of London. Originally a materials scientist, I have a PhD from EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. In my day job, I support academic colleagues at University College London with their grant writing.
