Biography
I am a sociolinguist and professional translator with the Arabic language at the heart of my academic research and translation work. I have a passion for cross-disciplinary research & collaboration.
Research description
My research falls within the area of Arabic sociolinguistics, with a particular interest in the Arabic writing system and the relationship between language on the one hand and the religious, political and social structure of the Arab world on the other. My PhD research explored the relationship between language ideologies and change in Egypt, with a focus on political change.
