NEWS: Anders Johannsen and I just launched Humboldt, a large-scale sociolinguistics tool that let’s you find out who says what where. So far, we already support British English and Danish, but will add more as we go along. Have a try at http://www.languagevariation.com

Hi, glad you found this site! I work in Natural Language Processing (NLP), a subfield of artificial intelligence. My research focuses on computational sociolinguistics, i.e., the intersection of sociolinguistics and statistical natural language processing (NLP). The goal of my research is to integrate sociolinguistic knowledge into NLP models. Concretely, I use large-scale statistics to detect and model the interaction between people’s demographic profile and their language use (see here or here). I am also interested in semantics (modeling what words mean in context), and non-standard language. I am currently a postdoc at CST at the University of Copenhagen.
I received my PhD from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where I was working as research assistant at the Information Sciences Institute. My thesis topic was how to learn semantic types and relations from plain text.

If you have questions or comments, feel free to send me a mail.
Cheers,

Dirk
