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 giving a keynote at the first European Conference on Conversation Analysis ECCA 2020 this year on “Three Meeting Points between Conversation Analysis and Artificial Intelligence“
- 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
