Dr Alexandra Krendel is a Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at the University of Southampton. Her research interests include online feminist and anti-feminist men's groups, the language of the manosphere (i.e. groups such as the red pill, pick-up artists, men-going-their-own-way or MGTOW, men's rights activists and involuntary celibates) and language and gender more broadly. She utilises multiple linguistic approaches in her work, including corpus linguistics, critical discourse analysis, multimodal analysis and pragmatics.

She is also on the executive committee of both Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines and the British Association of Applied Linguistics Special Interest Group for Language, Gender and Sexuality.
