I’m a lecturer in social sciences at Loughborough University. I study conversation to understand how people do things together in everyday life. I’ve looked at how politicians shake hands, how couples dance, how people draw, evaluate art, and how we deal with miscommunication in interaction.
upcoming & recent:
- I’m currently looking for a PhD student to work with me on an exciting new project on AI, Voice technologies and interaction between people with dementia and their carers.
- Recent publication: Albert, S., & Raymond, C. W. (2019). Conversation analysis at the ‘middle region’ of public life: Greetings and the interactional construction of Donald Trump’s political persona. Language & Communication, 69, 67–83. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.langcom.2019.08.001
