My general interest is the use of computational methods to study language change, from a bottom-up (agent-based modelling, neural networks, crowdsourcing) and a top-down (phylogenetic reconstruction, computational historical linguistics) perspective. I studied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Utrecht and the University of Amsterdam. I previously worked as a systems developer at the Dutch Language Institute.
