About myself

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the ERC-funded project "Grammatical Universals", headed by Martin Haspelmath at Leipzig University, Germany. The aim of the project is to investigate the relationships between linguistic form and usage frequency in different languages of the world. I'm a corpus linguist, statistician and programmer (R and Python). My theoretical interests are usage-based linguistics, variational linguistics (in particular, World Englishes) and typology. I also have experience in pragmatics, political linguistics and Machine Translation.
