ESRC postdoc for Donlan

Posted on September 9, 2021 by



PhD alumna Lisa Donlan is returning to Manchester after scooping up a coveted ESRC postdoctoral fellowship. The fellowship is to allow early career researchers the chance to develop their publication record, networks, research and professional skills.

Lisa’s project is on sociolinguistics of online communication. She’ll be undertaking training in Natural Language Processing, developing and submitting journal articles based on her PhD research, and undertaking a small research project on the semantics of emojis. She’s also planning to increase the impact of her doctoral research through an outreach programme on the subject of online communication. The programme will be delivered to local secondary school and sixth form students. So it’s a busy year ahead for Lisa! Manchet will keep you posted on how it’s going.

Welcome back, Lisa!
