I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki, where I have joined the COMHIS group. I research semantic change in multilingual, unstructured, OCRed, historical textual data and specialise in topic modelling (LDA) with a special interest on the relation between words and ideas, and how they evolve through time.
I have obtained my PhD from the Université libre de Bruxelles.
