Researcher

University of Gothenburg

Field of research: automatic detection of language change using textual corpora. Sentiment mining (tools and dictionaries) for Swedish. Broadly, I am interested in information extraction from diachronic textual data, historical as well as modern. I have recently taken an interest in methodological issues of using data science for the digital humanities; how should the output of data science be evaluated and how should we go from the resutl of text mining to generating knowledge in the humanities?

Responsibilities include:
