How can computational linguistics inform linguistic theory?

Qualifications

Research Interests

I am a computational linguist using data science to model both the emergence of grammatical structure and variation in grammatical structure using large multi-lingual corpora. My recent work has also focused on the impact of linguistic variation on computational models and on low-resource contexts. I have published over 30 papers and my first book was recently published by Cambridge University Press. My interdisciplinary teaching experience includes a MOOC which has now taught over 11,000 students about natural language processing.
