Research summary > [Click to expand]

I develop computer programs to analyse and model natural language. Working in python and R, my current focus is to make easy-to-use tools for researchers outside of computer science to use natural language processing methods, as well as advancing methods for applying text analysis to substantive problems in political and social science.

My background is in the computational modelling of semantic relations between nouns in English, and I have a general in interest in cognitive science and artificial intelligence.
