Hi, I’m a researcher in the field of computational linguistics. This is my academic website, where I also blog infrequently about things I’m reading and working on.
I’m currently working in the Change is Key! project in Gothenburg, Sweden with Nina Tahmasebi. Before that I was a PhD student in computational linguistics at the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability CLASP.
My research focuses on how we construct meaning through interaction. As a computational linguist, I try to find ways to investigate these questions using statistical and machine learning methods. I’m interested in how people align on the meaning of words over the course of a dialogue, and how this adaptive process can lead to long-term community-level semantic change. Right now, my work is focused on constructing datasets and devising modeling methods that help us investigate semantic change as a continuous process.
In no particular order, here’s a non-exhaustive list of topics and methods I find interesting.
