Nelya Koteyko is Professor of Language and Communication at Queen Mary University of London. Her research focuses on the relationship between media discourse and everyday practices and identities.

Nelya’s key interests lie in (1) construction of identity and social ‘co-presence’ through linguistic, visual, and technological resources in online networks; (2) the role of technological affordances in enabling and constraining communicative practices, and the impact this has on the exclusion and misrepresentation of marginalized groups.

She is PI on the ESRC funded project Autistic Adults Online and recipient of Wellcome Trust Discovery Award ‘Autism in affinity spaces: Interest-driven social media practices during the transition to adulthood’ (2023-2029).
