Currently, I am doing my PhD under the "Cultural and Scientific Perceptions of Human-Chicken Interactions" project exploring the representation of chickens in ethical discourse.

Current Research

My research focuses on the representation of farm animals in a range of discourses. The species I focus on is chickens. My approach is to use Critical Discourse Analysis to investigate how chickens are socially constructed in campaigning literature and scientific discourse of animal welfare science. I aim at analysing how language impacts on the way chickens are treated by humans and searching for the best ways to represent farm animals.

Past Research

Diners attitudes towards welfare of broiler chickens.

Future Research

I am interested in social sciences and linguistics.
