About me

I’m a PhD grad student in linguistics at Indiana University and also work as a computer programmer for digital humanities at Bucknell University, including working on the Moravian Lives Project . Computational linguistics/natural language processing is currently my main area of research with a strong interest in corpus linguistics, sentiment analysis, discourse analysis, semantic/thematic role labeling, topic modeling, and discourse analysis in general. My dissertation project involves a computational sentiment (emotion) analysis of 18th century English Moravian memoirs with Sandra Kübler as my advisor. The project, which is still in active development can be found here. I have also done work with the Old Occitan linguistic corpus and Flamenca digital scholarship project (links above) involving the Romance of Flamenca with Olga Scrivner, Sandra Kübler, and Barbara Vance.
