  • About

    I am a assistant professor of English Linguistics and Senior Researcher at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the UvA.

    My perspective on language is a blend of views from cognitive psychology and computer science, and is best framed within an experiential or usage-based emergentist theory. My research focuses on applying machine learning techniques to analyze data from corpora of natural language productions to address issues of human language learning and  processing.

    The most recent version of my research results can be found on Semantic Scholar, an artificial intelligence-based search engine for scientific publications
