Hi! I am a postdoctoral researcher at Språkbanken Text (University of Gothenburg), where I work within the Language Change project. My main research focus is lexical semantic change in multilingual, unstructured, OCRed, historical textual data. I can also do most text mining stuff.

This is a quick overview of my academic outputs, research stays, and teaching. For a full curriculum vitae, please email me at
