Quantitative Diachronic Linguistics Group



I am a diachronic linguist whose work has a quantitative and computational bent. My main interests concern sound change and morphosyntactic change. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the pressures that interact to shape the synchronic profiles of languages, with a focus on languages of Central, South and Southeast Asia. I use a wide range of tools in my approach to these issues. I use a wide range of quantitative and computational tools to investigate these issues, including Bayesian models and methods from deep learning, and seek to develop models that are flexible enough to address a wide range of questions of interest to diachronic linguists and linguists more generally.
