contrarian cultural & communications analysis


My main interest is in the analysis of language for consumer and public opinion research, particularly unpacking public discourses to provide clients with novel cultural and communications insights.

I have specific expertise in conducting mixed quantitative & qualitative analysis of linguistic data at scale, including analysis of NPS comments, survey verbatims, and social media data. For this, I combine computational methods with interpretive discourse analyses to produce meaningful insights, helping you get better value from data that is often overlooked and underappreciated.

I work with a diverse range of people from advertising account planners to marketers and strategists in large corporates, as well as not-for-profit and public service organisations, both in Ireland and the UK.
